submitted by Habib Ullah’s family
2nd December 2009
The family of Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah who died whilst being arrested during a routine stop and search in a car park in High Wycombe in July 2008 have recently met with the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) to assess the situation in terms of the investigation.
Contrary to unhelpful rumours and speculation locally the investigation is still on-going and the family have asked the IPCC to put an update up immediately to ensure that there is clear communication on this case. His widow Mussarat and his brothers and sisters still feel that there is a strong case against the officers that were present at the arrest and that the level of force used was excessive.
A key development in the last few months has been an apology to the Justice campaign on behalf of the former LPA Commander to High Wycombe in response to a letter that was sent to the organisers when they informed Thames Valley Police (TVP) of a rally that was being organised to mark Habib’s death.
