Met Police Firearms Officer Suspended Over Fatal Wood Green Shooting 

Published

on

The Metropolitan Police has suspended a Firearms officer and  warn he could be arrested.

The announcement follows the death of Mr Jermaine Baker in Wood Green. 

The Met confirmed they have agrred with the ‘suggestion’ that a firearms officer be suspended.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Peter Terry, from Specialist Crime and Operations, who is the senior officer leading post incident, said:

“The exact circumstances that led to Mr. Baker’s death must be thoroughly and independently examined. That is the role of the IPCC. It is only through establishing the full facts, as quickly as possible, as to what took place that day that the best interests of justice and of all those affected can be served.
“As this is an ongoing investigation we must all await the IPCC’s findings before drawing any conclusions or speculating on what has taken place.
“All of our firearms officers, who are all volunteers, do a job that is difficult and often dangerous. They all fully understand, quite rightly, that they will need to account for their actions if they use lethal force.

“The IPCC will receive our fullest possible support with their investigation.

“All of our officers involved in Friday’s operation are receiving all the possible support we can provide. This is a very difficult time for everyone affected by the death of Mr. Baker.

“Locally within Haringey and at a London-wide level the MPS are engaging with communities, to explain the different roles and area of responsibilities of the Met and the IPCC. This includes listening to and addressing any concerns raised.”

The ongoing investigation by the Organised Crime Command has now resulted in four men being charged with conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, namely, to aid the escape of Izzet Eren and Erwin Amoyaw-Gyamfi from lawful custody, contrary to common law.

Two of them were also charged with possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and driving a motor vehicle which had been taken without the consent of the owner.

Today, they appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court where they were remanded in custody to appear at Wood Green Crown Court on 4 January 2016.

Two other men were arrested on Friday, 11 December on suspicion of conspiracy to facilitate the escape of an individual from lawful custody – they have been bailed to a later date in connection with this investigation.

Published

on

The family of British man have been left devastated and furious after an Egyptian hospital because staff switched off his life support without their permission.

Despite this the hospital claim Adrian King suffered cardiac arrest however his family have told the local courts it’s because they didn’t have the money to pay a £7k insurance bill.

Adrian aged 39 became ill while he was on holiday with his friend in Hurghada, on Egypt’s east coast.

All of a sudden he fell unconscious and was being treated in hospital, during his time in hospital it was discovered his insurance policy have been voided and they demanded an upfront payment while he laid on his death bed.

The inquest heard how the insurance was void as he had not declared a bacterial infection he had within his stomach two years before his holiday.

Adrian’s dad Charles Bumford told the hearing: “A man at the hospital stood in my son’s room and told me: ‘The insurance is null and void – you pay now or I switch off the machines.’

“I didn’t have the £7,000 ($9,800) he was asking for at that time. As he walked out of the room he started switching things off.”

Charles added that he tried contacting the hospital ’50 times’ but he never received an answer. The friend Adrian was with at the time, Nicola, was similarly confused by the situation occurring in the medical facility.

“They did the second dialysis and then said that the insurance was voided,” she told the inquest.

“They never said he had a cardiac arrest or anything, they said it was stopping, because the funding was stopped.”

Our thoughts are with the family of Adrian at this difficult time.

Jon Venables Reportedly Attacked With Boiling Water By Fellow Inmate

Published

on

Jon Venables attacked with boiling water by a fellow inmate. 

Jon Venables, one of the schoolboys who murdered James Bulger in 1993 has been attacked in prison after an image was released on social media.

Venables who is now aged 35 was attacked with boiling water and sugar after a fellow inmate managed to work out his identity.

Venables have been living under a fake name since 2001 and was sent back to jail having broken the conditions of his release and being found guilty of child pornography.

Venables was banned from travelling back to Liverpool but he had been attending music events and going to Everton Football matches.

He was later found to be in possession of cocaine and was also having a relationship with an underage girl.

Prison Officers were forced to place Venables on lockdown after his identity was revealed and he was attacked with boiling water and sugar.

it is alleged that Venables complained that guards did nothing at first to stop the attack from happening and offered him little help once he had been assaulted.

The Ministry of Justice confirmed to Police Hour that “incidents of this nature happen within prisons and we cannot discuss the nature of individual cases”

Now that the true identity of Venables is known within side the prison after images have been circulated among inmates it will be inevitable that another attack will happen.

Venables is currently serving a three-year sentence for child pornography offences and possession of 1,170 images of children which included babies.

It is believed inmates have been circulating images of Venables from prison to prison in the hope that one prisoner can identity him.

Facebook and Twitter this month removed images from their social media websites of various men who people claimed was Venables.

It is a criminal offence to name or identity Venables on social media due to an anonymity order granted in 2001 that prevents him from ever being named or identified.

Due to the nature of his repeat offending there is mounting pressure to scrap that order in order to prevent further children being targeted.

However due to the nature of Venables sick attack these orders are likely never to be removed.
