#291906 - 13th Feb 2009 4:10pm Police face no charges over de Menezes

No police officers will be prosecuted over the death of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell Tube station.

The announcement comes after a review of evidence heard at the inquest into his death which returned an open verdict last December.

The jury at the inquest concluded they did not accept accounts given by the two officers who shot Mr de Menezes, known as Charlie 2 and Charlie 12.

But they were not given the option of an unlawful killing verdict after Coroner Sir Michael Wright controversially ruled it out.

Stephen O'Doherty, reviewing lawyer for the Crown Prosecution Service, said that in making his decision he had considered whether the two officers had lied to the inquest.

But he added that "although there were some inconsistencies in what the officers said at the inquest, there were also inconsistencies in what passengers had said. I concluded that in the confusion of what occurred on the day, a jury could not be sure that any officer had deliberately given a false account of events.

He added: "I also considered the actions of the individual officers in the police management team on that day and considered whether there was sufficient evidence to charge any of them with gross negligence manslaughter.

"There was no fresh evidence from the inquest which caused me to change my original decision that there was insufficient evidence to do so.

Awfully sorry, but I don't think any charges should have been issued in the first place!

They were doing their job. As sad as it is that a young man lost his life, in light of the events that had occurred shortly before the incident and the general atmosphere in the surrounding areas (I know what the atmosphere was like down south at that time as I was living there) he should not have run!!

Had the police in question NOT done their job and he WAS what they suspected, I'm sure they would have been berrated again - can't win!!

It's similar to when someone is killed following a police chase because they crash a stolen car - tough!! If they hadn't stolen the car in the first place, you'd still be alive!!

Damn I wish people would take responsibility for their own actions instead of trying to blame others somad
