On Friday 8th August 2014 Thames Valley Police was notified by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that there will be no criminal charges against police officers in relation to the death of Habib Ullah in High Wycombe in 2008.
However, Thames Valley Police has determined that there are cases to answer for gross misconduct under The Police (Conduct) Regulations 2008. This is an internal discipline matter.
It relates to the five officers allegedly leaving out materially significant details from the statements they submitted to the IPCC investigation and for subsequently failing to correct these omissions.
In addition, Thames Valley Police has found that there is a case to answer for one of the officers in relation to the use of force during the drugs search conducted on Mr Ullah on 3rd July 2008.
This matter will now proceed to a misconduct hearing and it would be inappropriate to comment further until this is concluded.
In the meantime Thames Valley Police will continue to liaise closely with Mr Ullah’s family, the IPCC and community representatives.
