Jean Charles de Menezes was murdered by the police at Stockwell tube on Friday 22nd July.

The Jean Charles de Menezes Family Campaign issued a statement yesterday claiming a victory in their fight for the full truth about the police murder of the innocent young Brazilian.

The statement said: ‘The Jean Charles de Menezes Family Campaign expressed their delight this morning at news reported in the Guardian that the Home Secretary is planning to approve a separate investigation by the IPCC into the conduct of Sir Ian Blair following the killing of Jean Charles by police forces at Stockwell tube station on 22nd July 2005.

‘The request for an investigation follows a letter of complaint from the Menezes family to the IPCC on 11 October claiming that Ian Blair had misled the family and the public immediately after Jean’s death.

‘Patricia da Silva Armani, cousin of Jean, who lived with him in his flat in Scotia Road, Tulse Hill said: “This is a great step forward in our campaign for justice. I am so happy, we all are so happy, it’s the best news.”
