Mark Duggan inquest: summing up now likely to start on Monday 9 December
4 December 2013
The Mark Duggan inquest is drawing to a close with summing up now likely to start on Monday 9 December.
Further updates will be posted here as soon as we hear about them.
‘I was already working with INQUEST, which is the organisation who monitor deaths in custody, and at one AGM I told the audience that what happened to these people [killed in police custody like Chistopher Alder, Roger Sylvester and many others] could happen to any of us. And then a couple of years later, I was standing in front of them again but now it had happened to my cousin. So my family and me were now “users” of Inquest. It shows you that none of us are immune – here am I, Benjamin Zephaniah, patron of INQUEST and client of INQUEST at the same time.’
