Thames Valley Police officers will face a misconduct hearing concerning the death of a man nearly seven years ago.
Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah, 39, of Slough, Berkshire, collapsed during a routine stop and search in a car park in High Wycombe in July 2008.
During the search by Thames Valley Police officers, he had breathing problems and later died in hospital.
At the inquest, which ended yesterday, the the 11 jurors gave a verdict of misadventure, with a narrative conclusion attached.
During the narrative jurors answered a series of questions surrounding both the actions of the officers involved – DS Jason Liles, PC Christopher Pomery, DC Richard Bazeley, PC Howard Wynne and PC Katie Granger – as well as Mr Ullah’s behaviour.
However, in a statement Thames Valley Police said the officers involved do still have a case to answer for, despite the jury’s conclusion of death by misadventure rather than ‘unlawful killing’ being returned.
Thames Valley Police have noted the “long and distressing process” Mr Ullah’s family has been through.
