Damages awarded for racial abuse assault and false imprisonment committed by police officers


Re: Mohidin & Ors v Commissioner of the Police of the Metropolis [2015] EWHC 2740 (QB)

The court awarded damages to two claimants where it held that two Metropolitan Territorial Support police officers had subjected them to racial abuse, assault and false imprisonment. Among the evidence that the court had to consider was the account of a Whistleblower Metropolitan police officer and the fact that the defendant officers had previously been acquitted for this conduct at a criminal trial.

Phillippa Kaufmann QC and Raj Desai were involved in this case.
