IRR News 28 September-4 October 2012

Written by: admin

Dear IRR News subscriber,

This week, Nicky Road reports on a recent conference held in London which brought together organisations helping separated young asylum seekers. We also highlight a demonstration taking place on 12 October to mark the second anniversary of Jimmy Mubenga’s death.

In other news from across the UK, Daniel Rogers has been found guilty of the murder of Bedford taxi driver Mehar Dhariwal in January this year, and an unnamed man has been charged with the murder of Mohammed Saleem Khan in an attack in Easingwold a few weeks ago which police say may have been racially motivated.

Meanwhile, the mother of Azelle Rodney, shot dead by the Metropolitan police in 2005, has criticised the Met’s attempt to prevent the disclosure of evidence to an inquiry into his death, whilst the inquest into the death of Jacob Michael has been shown CCTV footage of him pleading for help before he died in police custody last year.
