The family of Mark Duggan have had their application of a judicial review of police protocol rejected at the High Court in London.
Pamela Duggan, Mark’s mother, requested a review into the police procedures, claiming that the Association of Chief Police Officers didn’t take enough measures to ensure that officers didn’t talk with each other when writing up their incident reports of Mark’s shooting.
Police officers who were present at the pursuit and arrest of Mark Duggan claim that he had a firearm on him, and since his fatal shooting, there have been conflicts and doubts over what actually happened.
It was also recently revealed that there were inconsistencies with his injuries and police incident reports.
However, yesterday, Lord Justice Laws decided that Pamela did not have a case and the application was rejected.
The inquest into Mark Duggan’s death will begin on 16 September.
