New Met chief Dick ran op which killed Menezes

Families express horror at appointment to top job

THE family of Jean Charles de Menezes yesterday condemned the decision to appoint Cressida Dick — who ran the operation that killed him — as Metropolitan Police Commissioner.

They have “serious concerns” about the appointment of Ms Dick, who was in charge of an anti-terror operation which misidentified Mr de Menezes as a suicide bomber. He was shot seven times in the head at point-blank range in 2005.

The family said: “We had to face a tragedy that no family should ever have to experience; the tragic death of a loved one at the hands of those we entrusted to serve us and protect us.”

Mr de Menezes was killed while trying to board a train at Stockwell Tube station.

The 27-year-old Brazilian electrician had been on his way to repair a broken fire alarm, but was killed after being misidentified as being involved in a failed bomb attack the previous day.

It was later revealed that prior to his death he had been put under surveillance by the Met as he lived in the same building as two terror suspects.

Then-commander Ms Dick went to trial for breaching health and safety laws before eventually being cleared of blame by a jury.

In 2007 the Independent Police Complaints Commission decided it would not discipline any other front-line or surveillance officers as it said there was no prospect of charges being upheld.

The relatives of Mr de Menezes sought justice and brought a case to the European Court of Human Rights in 2015, but lost on grounds that there was insufficient evidence against any individual officer.

Immediately after killing Mr de Menezes, the police are known to have lied about the circumstances and altered evidence.

It was revealed in 2014 that the de Menezes family had been spied on by the police following their son’s death.

Ms Dick was recommended for the £270,000-a-year top post by Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

In making her decision, Ms Rudd took on board the views of Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who claimed Ms Dick had had a “distinguished” career.

Ms Dick was promoted to Deputy Assistant Commissioner just over a year after the execution of Mr de Menezes.

She also holds the Queen’s Police Medal for distinguished service.
