On behalf of the family of Chris Kaba and in collaboration with their legal representatives at Hickman and Rose, INQUEST are issuing the following statement:

Yesterday, Chris Kaba’s closest family were given the opportunity to view some footage of the incident in which he was fatally shot by a police officer.

The facts of this case demand urgent accountability and the family therefore await regular meaningful updates on the investigation and the progress towards a charging decision.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Jefferson Bosela said: “The family just wants justice. For now, the family are going to take a break and take a step back.”

The family will not make any further comment for the time being, whilst awaiting further regular updates from the IOPC to ensure that the investigation does the job that it needs to do. The family’s demands for the officer to be questioned under caution and for an early charging decision remain unchanged.
