Vigils in memory of Habib Ullah

Vigils in memory of Habib Ullah


Written by: Rebecca Wood

Last week, members of the local community and family and friends of Habib Ullah, who died after being arrested by police on 3 July, gathered in High Wycombe town centre to hold two vigils in his memory.

The vigils were held to provide the local community with more information and to raise awareness about Habib’s death. Members of Habib’s family and his close friends are now working towards holding a public meeting and a larger demonstration in the next month. They are also awaiting initial findings from the Independent Police Complaints Commission which is investigating the death.

Habib’s family have expressed concerns about how they found out about the death and the police version of events, read an IRR news story: Family question police role in death of Asian man.
