inquest for Menezes

From the Facebook group, Justice for Jean:
a date has finally been set for the inquest into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes. It will begin on 22nd September 2008 at Southwark Coroner's Court, London and could last up to three months.

The inquest will be the first opportunity Jean’s family have to ask the questions they want about the botched anti-terrorism operation that led to the death of their loved one. It will also be the first time key evidence will be heard such as evidence from the public witnesses’ in the tube carriage and from the firearms officers who killed Jean. If an inquest jury return a verdict of ‘unlawful killing’, the Crown Prosecution Service could revisit their earlier decision not to prosecute any officers involved in the police operation.
