Mark Duggan shooting: two community members quit police watchdog panel | UK news | The Guardian

Two members of a group set up to ensure community confidence in the investigation of the police shooting of Mark Duggan have resigned, the Guardian has learned.

The three-member community reference group was set up by the Independent Police Complaints Commission after Duggan was shot dead by a Scotland Yard marksman on 4 August in Tottenham, north London. The shooting was the prelude to some of the worst rioting in modern British history.

One member of the group claimed the police watchdog is, in some ways, worse than the force it is investigating. He also raised concerns about the handling of key evidence at the scene of Duggan’s death, claiming police were allowed to move it.

The IPCC appointed the group at the start of its investigation. The two members who have resigned, saying their confidence in the police watchdog’s inquiry was damaged, are community activists Stafford Scott and John Noblemunn. The third member, Pastor Nims Obunge, has not resigned.
