Brazil/UK: Justice for Jean Charles de Menezes

Joty reports that the Metropolitan Police Authority in the UK is meeting this Thursday, November 22, to decide whether or not to sack Ian Blair over the death of innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, in 2005. “So – politely and gently – they need a little bit of lobbying to ensure their vote goes the right way”. He also publishes links to related pieces of news.

    Many people must be sacked after this disgraceful travesty of justice.
    Every member of the Metropolitan Police Authority and the ‘officers’ involved in the murder of an innocent man must be interrogated and the ‘officers’ must be sacked pending a clear open retrial, with no fudging or lying or whitewash.
    Sir Paul Stephenson must be sacked and with out any ‘golden handshake’ merely shame for his dishonesty.
    JUSTICE FOR JEAN CHARLES DEMENZES.
