Inquest into Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah’s death on December 6

Over 2 years ago, the Asian man had died whilst being arrested

3rd December 2010:
More than two years after Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah died whilst being arrested during a routine stop and search in a car park in High Wycombe, the inquest will begin into his death on Monday 6th December 2010.

He was arrested by police in High Wycombe; and his family has waited for more than two years to find out how died following a routine drugs search involving five police officers.

He was 39 years old and leaves behind a young family. In fact, his family and friends are demanding answers to how an Asian man can die in the process of being searched

Habib Ullah’s inquest will be held from 6th December to 15th December 2010 at the Evreham Centre, Iver near Slough. Justice4Paps is looking for support in key ways.

The Justice for Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah campaign was set up with the family, friends and supporters.

It is asking people to attend the inquest and pledge support by coming for at least one sitting – most days there will be a morning and afternoon session. If you cannot attend, put a message of support up on the Facebook page or Justice4Paps website.

Saqib Deshmukh from the Justice4Paps campaign says whilst the family and the campaign do not hold out too much faith in the legal process and any possibility of a successful prosecution against the officers, they want to ensure that there is some accountability and action as well as recommendations for Thames Valley Police and other forces particularly in regard to mouth searches.

The nearest train station is Iver which is on the Paddington-Slough line and the centre is five minutes from Iver station by taxi and 10 minutes from Slough or Uxbridge by car.
