ABOUT THE CASE
Police subjected me to a violent and degrading strip search after I was arrested for offering a legal advice card to a 15-year-old who was being stopped and searched.
A Misconduct Panel appointed by the Metropolitan Police recently decided, on highly dubious grounds, to dismiss the case against the custody sergeant at Stoke Newington who ordered my strip search.
This was despite a finding by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) that Sergeant Howard had a case to answer for gross misconduct.
With the help of my lawyers, I am seeking to challenge the Panel’s decision. Initially, I need to raise at least £5,000 to launch this case. However, I will then need to continue raising funds as our case progresses.
