IRR News 3-9 August 2012

Written by: admin

Dear IRR News subscriber,

This week Saleh Mamon assesses a report by the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation.

In news from across the UK, the family of Mark Duggan who died after being shot twice by police in Tottenham have marked the year since his death and have also criticised the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) for failing to provide them with answers to key questions. A judge has also ruled that the BBC does not have to hand over footage of the aftermath of the shooting to police.

The IPCC has launched an investigation into the evidence of a police officer at the inquest into the death of Sean Rigg who died in police custody in Brixton in 2008. The family of Kingsley Burrell who died in March 2011 after being arrested by police in Birmingham will be holding a second demonstration on Saturday 18 August.
