Julian Blake appears in Sudesh Amman Inquest


Julian Blake is instructed by the Metropolitan Police in the Inquest into the Death of Sudesh Amman who was shot by police whilst carrying out an apparent terrorist attack in Streatham in February 2020. The deceased had recently been released from prison and was under surveillance by police at the time of the incident. He had constructed a hoax suicide belt and stabbed members of the public before being shot by officers. The Times (read here) has reported that “it is the first time relatives of an Islamist terrorist in the UK are to ask in court if the killing was necessary” or whether he could have been arrested earlier.
