West Midlands Police issue statement on Winson Green Trial

We do not underestimate the impact that the deaths of Haroon Jahan, Shazad Ali and Abdul Musavir had on their families, friends and the wider community of Birmingham, and indeed nationally.

Earlier this week, Chief Constable Chris Sims met with Harry Ireland, Chief Crown Prosecutor of the Crown Prosecution Service, to discuss what further steps could be taken following the end of the trial.

I, alongside local officers, continue to meet with members of the community who are working hard to maintain calm and strengthen relationships.

– Sharon Rowe, Assistant Chief Constable of West Midlands Police
