PCC statement following two jailed for murder of Bijan Ebrahimi


Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Mr Ebrahimi. The pain of losing a loved one is unimaginable and my heartfelt thoughts go out to them.

“The tragic murder of Mr Ebrahimi has shocked and saddened me and I have critical questions for the police and other agencies about the events leading up to Mr Ebrahimi’s death.

“While I am not going to draw any conclusions before the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigation and any other reviews are complete I am determined to look publicly at what could or should have been done differently.

“I will be holding a public meeting involving the police, Bristol City Council and any other organisations involved so that questions can be asked and any lessons learnt in order to prevent anything like this from happening again.

“Along with the Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson I believe Bristol is a friendly, tolerant city and the two men sentenced today do not represent the wider community or its attitudes. This abominable behaviour will not be tolerated in Bristol or indeed the whole of Avon and Somerset.”
