Garden Court Chambers, in association with the Institute of Race Relations presents:
Who Polices The Police?
(52 minutes/UK/2012/Ken Fero/Migrant Media)
Sean Rigg died in a caged area in Brixton Police Station in August 2008 and the Independent Police Complaint Commission (IPCC) were called in to investigate. The film covers the struggle by Sean Rigg's family for justice. This culminated in an inquest jury delivering a narrative verdict highly critical of the Metropolitan Police, in which barrister Leslie Thomas represented Mr Rigg's family. Read more about the film.
The film showing will be followed by a panel discussion, including:
- Leslie Thomas, the barrister who represented Sean Rigg's family at the inquest
- A member of the Rigg family
- Ken Fero, the film's director
After the panel discussion, attendees will be invited to join us for a drinks reception
This film screening is part of the Garden Court Human Rights Film Festival, a series of six films about aspects of human rights connected with our work.
