Duggan inquest jury to reconvene

Submitted by Matthew on 8 January, 2014 - 11:14

The jury in the inquest into the killing of Mark Duggan by armed police is due to reconvene on 7 January.

The killing, which took place in August 2011 in Tottenham, led to a local protest and then rioting on a nationwide scale. The public inquest was set up to uncover the truth surrounding the killing, but it has been characterised by confused and contradictory evidence from the police. Officers have variously claimed that Duggan had a gun, that he shot first, and that the gun “disappeared” once he was dead.

The jury had been adjourned in December after failing to reach a conclusion.
