De Menezes inquest verdict criticises police

Jean Charles de Menezes jury condemns police – Times Online:

The Scotland Yard anti-terrorist operation that led to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes was subjected to withering condemnation yesterday by an inquest jury.

In one of the most important public examinations of police conduct, the jurors found the testimony of the officers who shot the young Brazilian to be unreliable and concluded that Metropolitan Police commanders failed their frontline colleagues.

Mr de Menezes, 27, an electrician, was shot seven times in the head by specialist firearms officers who mistook him for a suicide bomber about to blow up a London Tube train.

It sort of restores one’s faith in British justice – but I still wonder why the coroner told the jury that they could not say the killing was unlawful.

What will happen in Athens?
