CO11 - Official Statement: 'We got it wrong'

15-09-2005 14:56

CO11 would like to extend a full apology to all civilians included in the 13/09/05 CO11 Operation Oracle 17 "bingo" cards.

CO11 accepts that these people were mistakenly identified as a threat to Public Order due to an ideological error.

That error has now been rectified and we have issued new cards to all officers involved in Oracle 17 with criminals we now accept pose a VERY REAL threat to public order and global security.

Please contact our legal department to make a claim at your earliest convenience. I have been assured by very senior officers that the Metropolitan Police Service will make extremely generous payments to all those affected by this awful error.

Waterside Anti-Arms Fair Protests - Opposite DSEi (pics)

14-09-2005 20:25

Says it all really
This afternoon the last large group of protestors (approx one hundred) moved into position opposite the Excel centre - facing the warships across the basin. As the sounds of the PA sound system echoed across the water - a mix of music, slogans and speeches - defence police and army personnel zipped across the waves in zodiac style speedboats (complete with waterborne FIT). This was about the best place campaigners could get to in order to maker themselves heard by the arms dealers. Demonstrations of military speedboats and landing craft were greeted with jeers and slogans shouted out over the water, meanwhile one person jumped off the quay and made a swim for the warships.
