British police told to apologize

February 13, 2007

Scotland Yard should apologise directly to the families caught up in the Forest Gate anti-terror raid who were put through a “terrifying experience”, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said today.

According to British newspaper The Independent, the so-called police watch dog stated that Scotland Yard should apologise directly to the families caught up in the Forest Gate anti-terror raid who were put through a “terrifying experience”.

Very aggressive tactics

British PM Tony Blair has earlier denied to apoligize for the raid. Acting on what the IPCC calls “failed intelligence”,  the police raided two properties in Lansdown Road, Forest Gate. One of the residents was shot and dragged down the stairs, and at least one other struck by officers employing very aggressive tactics.

While Assistant Commissioner Andy Hayman of Scotland Yard has offered an apology to one of the victims, british Prime Minister Tony Blair has denied to apologize for the incident, stating that he backed police in the raid “101 per cent”.
