Scotland Yard buy off over Jean Charles rejected

The Daily Mail reports The parents of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes have turned down a £560,000 compensation offer from Scotland Yard over his mistaken shooting.

Two weeks ago (12 days into the late starting, orginally stifled IPCC investigation - jultra), John Yates, deputy assistant commissioner at Scotland Yard, flew to Brazil to make an initial offer of payment. Yasmin Khan, of the Justice4Jean campaign, said it was flatly rejected; the family were not prepared to be bought off.

"It is unbelievable that at the same time as the Met chief (Sir Ian Blair) is lying in Britain and misleading the public, he is also sending officers out to Brazil to offer money. It adds to our suspicions of a cover-up."

Jean Charles's cousin Alessandro Pereira said: "The police knew Jean was innocent, yet they let my family suffer. They let us suffer. Ian Blair let us suffer. "For three weeks, we have had to listen to lie after lie about Jean and how he was killed...Ian Blair should resign."

Campaigners are demanding a public inquiry into the bungled investigation, while police sources are now claiming the watchdog delayed its investigation into the shooting because it did not want to pay its staff overtime, an allegation denied by the IPCC.
