Moir and Sweeney Litigation to represent CRER in Sheku Bayoh Inquiry
Moir and Sweeney Litigation will be representing CRER (Coalition for Racial and Equality Rights) in the Sheku Bayoh Inquiry.
CRER has been designated as a core participant in the inquiry into the death of Mr Bayoh, who died on 3 May 2015 after an incident in the street in Kirkcaldy involving officers of Police Scotland.
The purpose of the inquiry is to examine: the immediate circumstances leading to the death of Mr Bayoh; how the police dealt with the aftermath; the subsequent investigation into the death and whether race was a factor. It is chaired by former judge Lord Bracadale.
Ian Moir told SLN: “Moir and Sweeney Litigation are delighted to be representing CRER who have been announced as a core participant in the Sheku Bayou Inquiry.
“It is right that any issues of race are fully examined and we look forward to participating fully in the inquiry.”
