Corbyn reiterates dangers of shoot to kill

Wednesday 18th November 2015

JEREMY CORBYN said yesterday that he supports the police using any “strictly necessary force” needed to prevent terror attacks, writes Luke James.

The Labour leader reiterated his concerns over the “clear dangers” of the so-called shoot-to-kill policy.

He alluded to the case of Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot dead at a London Tube station in 2005 by officers who mistakenly believed he was a terrorist.

Mr Corbyn said the Paris terror attacks must not be “used to undermine the very freedoms and legal protections we are determined to defend.”

But he added: “Of course I support the use of whatever proportionate and strictly necessary force is required to save life in response to attacks of the kind we saw in Paris.”

Mr Corbyn clarified his position after comments he made on Monday sparked a row within the party over shoot-to-kill.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan Howe defended the use of lethal force to stop terrorists but insisted no such policy existed.

When terror struck New York in 2001, what should have been a police operation to arrest Bin Laden instead became a new Thirty Years’ War. None of us are any more secure for it, argues NICK MATTHEWS: here.
