Mark Duggan inquest coroner to further examine evidence

DIVISIVE VERDICT: Mark Duggan was 'lawfully killed' by police in 2011 when unarmed

THE CORONER in the Mark Duggan inquest has revealed his intention to further examine “evidence” and “issues” following the “lawful killing” conclusion of the inquest and is inviting suggestions from interested parties.

Judge Cutler said: “I do not want to be part of a justice system which in a case of this nature simply closes the file and moves on to the next.

“Under schedule 5 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 I have an obligation to consider whether to make a report about anything revealed during the course of the investigation and inquest which raises concerns that there is a risk of other fatalities.”

He added: “I have invited ALL interested parties to submit suggestions in writing to me by the end of this month.

"There have been a number of issues and areas of evidence which may deserve further examination or question.

“If I do decide to make any recommendations or make any other statements these will be published on the website as appropriate.

"Given the significant profile of this case I want to ensure that this process is transparent to all interested parties and the general public.”

The news comes after a vigil, organised by the family on Saturday afternoon passed peacefully.

Duggan, a father-of-six, was shot dead by armed police when they stopped the taxi in which he was travelling in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011.

His death sparked rioting on the streets of London and spread to other urban areas in England.
