Police guilty over Menezes case

London’s Metropolitan police force has been found guilty of endangering the public over the fatal shooting of a man officers mistook for a suicide bomber.

The force broke health and safety laws when officers pursued Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes to a Tube station and shot him seven times, a jury found.

It was fined £175,000 with £385,000 costs over the 22 July 2005 shooting. …

Mr de Menezes‘s relatives said they wanted to see a “full and thorough” inquest into the electrician’s death.
