Doreen Lawrence and John McDonnell are among 74 victims of secret undercover police operations, lawyers and others condemning misrepresentation of the cosmetics retailer
We are victims of what has become known as the “spycops” operation, and their legal representatives and supporters. In many of these secret undercover operations the police have admitted to violation of human rights, abuse of police powers and causing significant trauma, including inhuman and degrading treatment breaching article 3 of the European convention of human rights.
We are pressing for the current public inquiry into undercover policing to ensure that there is full disclosure of what took place, including who was targeted, by whom and how. Without this full disclosure there is no way of knowing the full extent of what happened during the dark years of this secret policing operation.
