Paddy Power斬首事件。死因裁判官強調當局的 "失誤

驗屍官得出結論,如果攻擊者在一個月前被轉介到心理健康服務機構,那麼一名在投注站被斬首的男子的死亡 "就不會發生"。

法庭被告知,穆斯塔法在24小時內根據《精神健康法》被拘留,他有 "嚴重的妄想症",相信他們是在女王的授意下 "變身超級英雄,參加尋寶比賽"。



12月12日,法庭聽到,他因涉嫌入室盜竊而被捕,並在佩里-巴爾拘留所告訴警方,他是 "根據線索 "進入大樓的,並因此獲得了獎金。


12月18日,穆斯塔法先生再次被捕,聽證會被告知,當時他正試圖躲避警察,並持有一根鐵棍。他後來被釋放,因為沒有證據指控他,也沒有精神疾病的 "明顯跡象"。


The death of a man who was decapitated in a betting shop "would not have occurred" if his attacker had been referred to mental health services the month before, a coroner has concluded.

Mustafa was detained under the Mental Health Act within 24 hours and was "severely delusional", believing they were "shapeshifting superheroes in a competition to find treasure" at the behest of the Queen, the court was told.

He was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, that was said to have responded well to medication.

The inquest heard Mustafa, a former medical student, also from Sudan, had been stopped by police on 9 December, a month before the attack, and found to be in possession of martial arts weapon nunchucks plus a wheel brace, but no signs of mental illness were found.

On 12 December, the court heard, he was arrested on suspicion of burglary and told police at Perry Barr Custody Suite he went into the building "following clues" that led to prizes.

The court then heard that the following day, 13 December, a PC referred Mustafa to the suite's Liaison and Diversion (L&D) unit, which screened patients for vulnerability, and there he was seen by a mental health nurse, but not referred for a Mental Health Act assessment.

Mr Mustafa was arrested again on 18 December when, the hearing was told, he was trying to evade police while in possession of a crowbar. He was later released as there was no evidence to charge him and "no obvious signs" of mental illness.

"Had he been referred he would have received treatment and/or been detained and the death would not have occurred," he concluded.
