Vigil and protest to be held outside Wycombe police station

Bucks Free Press: Vigil and protest to be held outside Wycombe police station Vigil and protest to be held outside Wycombe police station

A VIGIL and protest will be held outside Wycombe police station to mark the birthday of a man who died in police custody.

The Justice4Paps group will be holding a vigil outside the police base in Queen Alexander Road from 5pm on Friday to mark what would have been the birthday of Habib Ullah.

Mr Ullah suffered a cardiac arrest and died on July 3, 2008 after being restrained by police officers who were trying to force drugs out of his mouth, an inquest in December 2010 was told.

But the inquest was later abandoned after the coroner was told police officers had been advised to alter parts of their statements by a solicitor. Mr Ullah’s family have been fighting for answers ever since.

In addition to the vigil, Justice4Paps will also be holding a peaceful demonstration as it continues its campaign to secure a public inquiry into policing operations in High Wycombe.

It follows concerns raised to the group by traders in Green Street over anti-social behaviour, as well as Thames Valley Police’s handling of the Operation Ribbon child sex abuse case.

Justice4Paps said: “We urge all people who issues and concerns to do with policing in the town to attend the event and support those individuals who have come forward to complain about their treatment at the hands of the police, as well as supporting the family of Habib Ullah.”

Glad the BFP corrected the story to ensure we all remember that he was a criminal and not an innocent victim. These people should be ashamed of themselves and realises the police were only doing their job, the fact that this criminal decided to try to cheat the law and swallow his stash of drugs and thus cause himself to have a cardiac arrest has nothing to do with the police. I find this whole charade offensive and unnecessary.

All this explains why the police are doing their hardest to prevent it going to court including leaning on a restraint expert and the dodgy emails that were sent from the IPCC to their investigators that was exposed on BBC Panorama last year. Why would the campaign and the family's barristers persist for so long on this tragedy if there was no case to answer? Why has this death has been covered by the Times & Private Eye as well as other media if it was such an open and shut case?

Of course you clowns know the full story but without having cognisense of the full facts and there being a trial or a fresh inquest (oh yea the last one collapsed as it was revealed that that the police changed their statements) we will have to wait for the judicial system to proclaim judgement not a few keyboard warriors. The invitation has always been there to come and attend the many public meetings and vigils and talk to the family and campaign members but that would surely be too uncomfortable for you folk.

Pap's case is only part of the story - the last six months has seen a systematic failure of local policing in the town and so many others who have put in complaints around neglect, harassment and downright incompetence sill be at the vigil. But of course we know that we inhabit a different Wycombe than you all do and that is perhaps part of the problem...

I know who I am says...

If this person wasn't involved in drugs or trying to hide them in the first place he would probably still be here. Instead he chose the criminal road then tried to make it difficult and hide his crime. What ever triggered his heart attack whether it be a dodgy heart or police being too heavy handed still does not excuse his crimes

"We inhabit a different part of Wycombe".

Yep, the louder, more vocal and angry part of Wycombe that feels the World is agianst them. No smoke without fire, I'm afraid.

Now please let the police get on with their (pretty **** difficult) job and keep the rest of us safe from criminals and charlatans. People claiming to be speaking for the majority need to re-assess their situation.

"Man charged with assaulting police officer in Flackwell Heath"
If public can get charged straight away for assaulting a police officer then why could it be the same when a police officer assaults the public. This matter of Habib Ullah is not he only point. Who remembers OPERATIOB RIBBON all over the papers and news when they got charges. HOWEVER wasn't the same situation when they all got release and charges got dropped. We need ANSWERS? No JUSTICS till we get AMSWER!!!!
