Richard Boyle, led by Francesca Whitelaw, is representing the Secretary of State for the Home Department in this inquest which starts today. The inquest arises out of the terrorist attack on Streatham High Road by Amman. Amman was shot dead by armed police after stabbing two members of the public, who survived their injuries. At the time of the attack, Amman was on licence for offences under the Terrorist Act and under active police surveillance. The inquests will consider the management of Sudesh Amman by state agencies from his release from prison up to the date of the attack and the surveillance operation on Amman.
The inquests are being held in the Royal Courts of Justice before Mr Justice Hilliard and are estimated to last for three weeks.
