切爾西橋。在電擊槍射擊後死亡的男子的家人感到 "痛苦

一名被警察用泰瑟槍從泰晤士河中拉出後死亡的男子的家人對警察監督機構的調查表示關切。

Oladeji Adeyemi Omishore的親屬對倫敦警察局6月4日報告的關於他沒有攜帶螺絲刀的更正表示歡迎。

家人通過慈善機構Inquest發布了一份聲明,對警察在41歲的人 "顯然遭受了精神健康危機,他很脆弱和害怕 "的時候如何對待他表示關切。

6月4日,警察試圖拘留Omishore先生,說他們收到報告說他在切爾西橋路拿着一把螺絲刀。

他逃跑了,最後掉進了泰晤士河,後來在醫院死亡。

警察行為獨立辦公室(IOPC)的調查人員周二證實,Omishore先生曾被電擊過不止一次。

在IOPC的最新更新之後,他們的家人在聲明中說。"我們歡迎早該進行的糾正,即奧拉德吉當時所擁有的只是一個打火機。

"德吉顯然遭受了精神健康危機,他很脆弱,很害怕。

"我們已經向IOPC陳述了我們對警官如何與他溝通、他們對他反覆使用武力及其影響的擔憂。"

他們還對有關兩名涉案官員仍然在職的報道表示關切。


The family of a man who died after being pulled from the River Thames having been Tasered by officers have raised concerns about the police watchdog's investigation.

Relatives of Oladeji Adeyemi Omishore have welcomed a correction that he was not armed with a screwdriver, as reported by the Met Police on 4 June.

Releasing a statement through the charity Inquest, the family expressed concerns about how police treated the 41-year-old at a time when he was "clearly suffering from a mental health crisis and he was vulnerable and frightened".

On 4 June officers tried to detain Mr Omishore, saying they had received reports he was armed with a screwdriver on Chelsea Bridge Road.

He fled and ended up in the River Thames and later died in hospital.

Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) investigators confirmed on Tuesday that Mr Omishore had been Tasered more than once.

In their statement after the IOPC's latest update, the family said: "We welcome the long overdue correction that all Oladeji had in his possession at the time was a lighter.

"Deji was clearly suffering from a mental health crisis and he was vulnerable and frightened.

"We have set out our concerns to the IOPC about how the officers communicated with him, their repeated use of force on him, and its impact."

They also expressed concern at reports that the two officers involved remained on active duty.
