Jean Charles de Menezes jury told to remember officer’s tears

The jury hearing the inquest on Jean Charles de Menezes will retire to consider its verdict today, having been instructed not to return a finding that he was unlawfully killed by police.

Sir Michael Wright, QC, the coroner, told the 11 jurors that they will have to work through the evidence from 100 witnesses and decide whether discrepancies between witnesses were “failures of recollection” or caused by misunderstanding and communication lapses at the time.

The coroner reminded the jury of the moment that “Charlie 12”, one of the policemen who shot Mr de Menezes, broke down in tears during his evidence.
