Sue Mountstevens reaction to extended IPCC investigation


In response to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) extension into their investigation of Avon and Somerset Police following the death of Mr Ebrahimi Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “I welcome a thorough and independent investigation by the IPCC into the police contact following and prior to Mr Ebrahimi’s tragic murder last July.

“Avon and Somerset Police referred this case to the IPCC within hours of Mr Ebrahimi’s death and I had expected a review to conclude by last December. I am now told it may not be until May and I am concerned with the length of time Mr Ebrahimi’s family are left waiting for answers.

“I would imagine that many local people may feel that this investigation has been pushed into the long-grass. I hope that there are no further delays and the IPCC has the resources to deal with this case effectively.

“With the spotlight firmly on the integrity of policing, it is vital the IPCC reports back to the family and local people as soon as possible.”
