Imran Khan speaks on police corruption, surveillance and racism

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

Leading lawyer and activist Imran Khan last night spoke about police corruption, surveillance and racism, as he gave the 23rd Eve Saville Memorial Lecture.

Imran started by talking about the unprovoked racist murder of Stephen Lawrence in a south London street in April 1993. He went on to discuss the various inquiries and investigations that followed over the years, and the suspicions of corruption, racism and surveillance that continue to hang over this case.

He argued that police corruption and racism was an endemic feature of modern policing. A systematic, long-term agenda to reform the police and challenge prevailing practices was urgently needed.
