Family wants answers on shooting
Saturday 04 August 2012
The family of Mark Duggan says it remains in the dark about the circumstances surrounding his fatal shooting by police one year on from the events that triggered the summer riots.
The police watchdog is continuing the inquiry into Mr Duggan's death after the car in which he was travelling was stopped by armed Scotland Yard officers in Tottenham, north London. The family's solicitor, Maria Willis-Stewart, said: "The family are waiting to be able to hear one day – not too far in the future – the answers to the key questions as to what happened and why."
She said they were pinning their hopes on an inquest that has been delayed until at least next year and may not be held at all because of issues about phone-intercept evidence.
