UK: No police charges in accidental terror death
02/14/2009
No police officials will be charged in the death of a Brazilian who was mistakenly shot by officers in the tense days following 2005 terror attacks in London, prosecutors announced Friday after a new review of the case. Prosecutors had previously decided not to file charges against any police for killing 27-year-old Jean Charles de Menezes in a London subway car two weeks after 52 commuters were killed in suicide bombings on the British capital's transport network. But prosecutors were required to review the case one final time after a jury at a coroner's inquest returned an "open verdict" on his death in December. Prosecutor Stephen O'Doherty said there was insufficient evidence that police had committed any offense. De Menezes was mistaken for a suicide bomber.
