‘THEY ARE GOING TO PAY FOR THEIR LIES!’ – Menezes family hails Blair inquiry

‘This will be the start, they are going to pay for all their lies, all the shootings,’ Alex Pereira, the cousin of Jean Charles de Menezes told News Line yesterday.

He said: ‘I am very happy Commissioner Blair is being investigated, he should resign’.

Pereira was responding to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) confirmation that it is beginning an investigation of the conduct of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair and his officers, after the police murder of unarmed young Brazilian electrician, De Menezes at Stockwell Tube last July 22nd.

Alex Pereira added to News Line: ‘We asked the IPCC to do that a month ago.

‘Commissioner Blair showed us no respect.

‘At 3.30pm when he made his statement he knew that my cousin was a Brazilian and not a terrorist.

‘He made a false statement.

‘He has to answer why no-one went to Jean Charles’ house to give us the news of his death.’
