>IPCC publish report into assault on woman at G20

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

>The report says not very much apart from reiterating the HMIC recommendations that there should be, on demonstations:

o No surprises – Protestors and public should be made aware of
likely police action in order to make informed decisions.
o A release plan to allow vulnerable or distressed persons or those
inadvertently caught up in the police containment to exit.
o A review of current public order training.

It also recommends the use by police of “portable matrix information boards with large-scale displays to assist communication.”

And emphasised the Home Affairs Committee ruling that there is ‘no excuse’ for police to use containment on peaceful protesters.
