Jean Charles 'Two Years, No Justice'

Jul 23 2007


A MINUTE'S silence was held outside Stockwell Tube station by the family of Jean Charles de Menezes on Sunday to commemorate the second anniversary of his death.

The 27-year-old Brazilian electrician was trailed by cops from a flat in Scotia Road, Tulse Hill, and shot seven times on a Tube train on July 22, 2005, after being mistaken for a suicide bomber.

On Friday night, the Jean Charles de Menezes family campaign projected a massive image of his face on to the walls of the Houses of Parliament.

The 20m x 30m image included the slogan Two Years,No Justice.

A campaign spokesman said: "Two years on, no single police officer involved in the operation that resulted in Jean's tragic death has faced a criminal investigation; in fact, some have even been promoted."

The family also want to meet new Home Secretary Jacqui Smith to discuss the case.The Home Office had not commented before we went to press yesterday.

A public meeting to update supporters of the campaign was planned for last night at Conway Hall in Westminster where Metropolitan Police Authority member and Southwark councillor Jenny Jones was set to speak.
