On 12 February 2020, I announced the establishment an independent Inquiry, under the Inquiries Act 2005, to investigate the circumstances involved in the death of Jermaine Baker during a Metropolitan Police Service operation on 11 December 2015.
Today, the Chair of the Inquiry, His Honour Clement Goldstone QC published the Inquiry’s final report. As set out in the Inquiries Act 2005 the report has also been laid before Parliament.
My department will consider any findings and any recommendations in due course. I hope this report will provide answers and closure for the Baker family.
This statement has also been made in the House of Lords
