Statement by Kate Osamor MP following the conclusion of Anthony Long’s trial for the murder of Azelle Rodney

“My thoughts are with the friends and family of Azelle Rodney. I appreciate

that this trial must have been a difficult experience for them. I am also very

concerned that they have had to wait ten years for this verdict and by the

extra hardship which this delay has caused. I believe that Mr Rodney's mother

Ms. Alexander is owed an apology for the way this case was handled by the

Independent Police Complaints Commission.”

 “Although Mr. Long had been cleared of murder, there remain very serious

questions about the way the Met Police carried out the operation in question.

\Policing by consent depends on people having confidence and trust in the

police force. It is therefore vital that the Metropolitan Police Service learn

lessons from the avoidable death of Mr. Rodney, so that incidents like this

are not repeated.”
