PCC statement following verdicts in Bijan Ebrahimi misconduct trial


Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “My heart goes out to Mr Ebrahimi’s family who more than anything want to know that the Constabulary have learnt lessons from what happened to their brother.

“It is of immense frustration to me as it is to many others that the legal proceedings have taken this long and that there are further proceedings to follow. However it is vital that the Independent Police Complaints Commission and the police examine in detail the events surrounding Mr Ebrahimi’s tragic murder.

“It is clear that on this occasion the Constabulary failed local people and let down a vulnerable man in his own home. This should never have happened. My priority now on behalf of residents is to ensure that above everything else protecting the most vulnerable people within our society is paramount within Avon and Somerset Constabulary.”
