01 November 2010. On October 12, Mr. Jimmy Mubenga, 46, an Angolan refugee, died while being escorted on a flight from Heathrow airport in London departing for Luanda.
He was in the custody of guards for the private security company G4S, after his appeal to remain in the European country was rejected.
On 18th October police investigating the circumstances surrounding Mr. Mubenga’s death arrested the three security guards. On 29 October, Home Office decided not to renew G4S’s multimillion-pound government contract to forcibly deport foreign nationals. Mr. Keith Vaz, chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, called for a full-ranging inquiry.
Please join the demo to support the family’s need for the truth to be told and for a death like Jimmy’s never to happen again.
