A Kent Police inquiry took place into the case in 1997 followed by the Macpherson Report in 1999, which found evidence of “pernicious and institutionalised racism” in the Metropolitan Police. On Friday the IPCC said a recent internal Met review of the case discovered material from 1993 which was allegedly not disclosed to either inquiry.
One does not yet know what this significant material is. But this is a significant discovery by the IPCC. The Police have improved somewhat but the whole country and all institutions, as my repetitive mirror-holding has proven, has a long way to go as, now, compared to the giant leaps made in the first year of Obama administration.
