domenica, 12 Dicembre, 2010

Wanted. Questo francamente non si era mai visto per le proteste degli studenti in tutta Europa. Le foto di 15 studenti inglesi pubblicate da Scotland Yard con l’invito a chi li conosce a collaborare all’inchiesta. Giro di vite della polizia sotto il governo Cameron, con questo show di 15 foto da Far West. Tra gli arrestati anche Charlie Gilmour, figlio di Dave dei Pink Floyd. Apprensione poi per Alfie Meadows, 20 anni, operato al cervello, in seguito a una manganellata.

Police issue pictures of protest suspects

By Joe Sinclair, PA Sunday, 12 December 2010

Scotland Yard released pictures today of 14 people who are wanted in connection with violence during the tuition fee demonstrations.

Detective Chief Superintendent Matthew Horne, leading the investigation, said: “We want the public to help us identify these people who may have been involved in violent disorder, attacking police officers and smashing buildings, shops and windows.

“The vast majority of the people we are seeking are suspected of committing serious offences of violent disorder and criminal damage.

“The rights of protest and expression are important to us all. However, people breaking the law, endangering those protesting peacefully and committing offences such as this are criminals.

“We will investigate them and where we have the evidence we will arrest them. If you know who any of these people are, please let us know.”

Police launched a public order investigation, Operation Malone, to cover all fee protests held from November 10, when students stormed Tory headquarters in Millbank, until Thursday’s demonstration in Parliament Square.

A total of 175 people were arrested during the four demonstrations, including 34 who were detained on Thursday after havoc in central London left dozens of officers and protesters injured.

All of those arrested in the most recent demonstration have been bailed to return pending further inquiries.

The team, which is reviewing hours of CCTV and police footage, urged anyone with information about the suspects to call 020 8358 0100 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Following the latest protest, Prime Minister David Cameron demanded that demonstrators who defaced war memorials and attacked the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall face the “full force of the law”.

Mr Cameron warned that it was not possible to blame the distressing scenes on a small militant element when so many in the crowd were acting in an “absolutely feral way”.

Charlie Gilmour, son of Pink Floyd frontman David, apologised after being identified as one of those who climbed on the Cenotaph, the nation’s monument to its war dead, as thousands of youngsters vented their fury over the decision by MPs to treble university fees to a maximum of £9,000 a year.

Among the most shocking episodes was the attack on a Rolls-Royce carrying Charles and Camilla by a gang who smashed a window and threw paint while shouting “Off with their heads!”

A Clarence House spokesman refused to confirm reports that the Duchess was poked with a stick through an open window, but stressed that the royal couple did not seek medical help.

The Met Police declined to comment on reports that the royal car was driven into harm’s way because of a breakdown in communication.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson said an investigation was being held into the security breach and added that armed protection officers showed “real restraint” not to open fire as the situation slipped out of control.

Meanwhile, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is examining one incident where a 20-year-old student needed brain surgery after allegedly being hit with a truncheon.

New images and footage released re Thursday’s disorder

Images available. Please see links below.

EMBARGOED UNTIL 00.01hrs on MONDAY 13 December:

Detectives from Operation Malone have today (Monday 13 December) released new images of people they want the public’s help to identify.

The images, including both stills and moving footage, are taken from the Parliament Square area following the serious disorder and violence that was seen on London’s streets on Thursday 9 December.

Anyone who may know who these people, or any others who broke the law, is asked to contact the investigation team on 020 8358 0100. If you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

To date, the investigation has received an encouraging response to the appeal issued with photographs on Sunday 12 December, taking in excess of 50 calls.

Superintendent Julia Pendry, from the Metropolitan Police Service’s Public Order Branch, said:

“If you have been on one of the recent demonstrations, and been one of the people who have crossed the line from protestor to criminal, you need to understand that our team is looking for you. In the heat of the moment it can be all too easy to get swept away with the crowd and break the law. You need to know that you will be the person held accountable for your actions.”

Police are assessing intelligence suggesting more demonstrations or protest activity will be held in central London over the course of this week. We have had some contact from one of the groups involved, at a national level, about organising a series of protests today (13 December). There are still organisers of events on Tuesday, 14 December that have not contacted the police to talk about the size and nature of their planned demonstrations.

Superintendent Pendry said:

“Looking ahead to this week, I would say to protest groups you still have time to come and work with us. Through dialogue we can help you make your protest go ahead safely, whilst the rest of London can go about its business.

“Importantly for all those people who care very passionately about their right to demonstrate and make their views know we can reduce the risk that your protest may become hijacked.

“We will have a substantial policing operation in place to manage what may happen as a result of these suggested protests. Officers will be deployed on crime and reassurance patrols, giving us a pool of people to quickly draw on and move around as we need them.”

Officers will be deployed across central London, with high-visibility policing carried out at key locations and premises. They will be supported by specialist officers, including public order trained and evidence and intelligence gatherers.

NOTES TO EDITORS:

As can be seen, each picture has a number in its title [e.g. ‘co774-10pic15’ is ‘Picture 15’]. It would assist the inquiry team greatly if Press could include these Picture Numbers in its publications, to ease identification should the public call in about the images.

In case of difficulty they are a/v on request – quote refs. ‘Pics 1 – CO774-10pic15-18

EMBARGOED UNTIL 00.01hrs on Sunday 12 December:

Detectives from Operation Malone have today (Sunday 12 December) released 14 images of people they want to identify following the serious disorder and violence that was committed during a demonstration in central London on Thursday 9 December.

A dedicated team has been formed within the Specialist Crime Directorate to manage the investigations into those arrested and outstanding from demonstrations over the past month.

Detective Chief Superintendent Matthew Horne, leading the investigation, said:

“We want the public to help us identify these people who may have been involved in violent disorder, attacking police officers and smashing buildings, shops and windows.

“The vast majority of the people we are seeking are suspected of committing serious offences of violent disorder and criminal damage.

“The rights of protest and expression are important to us all. However, people breaking the law, endangering those protesting peacefully and committing offences such as this are criminals. We will investigate them and where we have the evidence we will arrest them. If you know who any of these people are please let us know.”

Anyone who knows these people is asked to contact the Operation Malone team on 020-8358 0100; if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Operation Malone detectives are now identifying and tracing people wanted in connection with serious violence and disorder from four protests held over the past four weeks. The team is collating and reviewing hours of CCTV and police gathered footage. The protests were all organised in response to the proposed rise in tuition fees.

The demonstration in central London on 9 December resulted in a total of 34 arrests, all of whom are now bailed to return pending further inquiries.

In total Operation Malone detectives are now dealing with 175 arrests from all four demonstrations. There are outstanding suspects from the four different protests.

+ Shortly before 15.00hs on Sunday 12 December, a 17-year-old male [‘Arrest 36’] handed himself in at a central London police station, where he was arrested on suspicion of violent disorder. He remains in custody.

NOTES TO EDITORS:

+ It is alleged that ‘Arrest 36’ is the man shown in ‘Picture 12’. We ask that this image is no longer published at this time.

As can be seen, each picture has a number in its title [e.g. ‘co774-10pic01’ is ‘Picture 1’]. It would assist the inquiry team greatly if Press could include these Picture Numbers in its publications, to ease identification should the public call in about the images.

In case of difficulty they are a/v on request – quote refs. ‘Pics 1 – CO774-10pic01-14’
