Another Anniversary

Anniversary of Jean Charles de Menezes Murder by Police

One year after the death of Jean Charles de Menezes, his relatives and friends have gathered at the south London Tube station where he was killed.

A hot and humid Saturday at Stockwell Tube station was the backdrop for an intensely emotional display of grief, one year on from the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes.

The presence of Abul Koyair and his brother Mohammed Abdul Kahar – who was shot and wounded by police at his east London home last month – served as a reminder of the case’s wider importance.

The Forest Gate pair, along with Mr Menezes, have become rallying points for critics of the government’s perceived heavy-handedness in the so-called war on terror.

A year gone by and still no justice for de Menezes.
