Stephen Lawrence Inquiry - Key aims announced - Alison Morgan junior counsel

Alison Morgan is instructed as junior counsel to investigate a series of allegations arising out of the conduct of police investigating the death of Stephen Lawrence.

Details have been released of six key questions that the inquiry is aiming to answer, the first three covering whether there is evidence of corruption and whether the public inquiry into the investigation was given all relevant information.

The other three are:

What was the role of undercover policing in the Lawrence case, who ordered it and why? Was information on the involvement of undercover police withheld from the Macpherson Inquiry, and, if it had been made available, what impact might that have had on the Inquiry?

What was the extent of intelligence or surveillance activity ordered or carried out by police forces nationally in respect of the Macpherson Inquiry, Stephen Lawrence’s family or any others connected with the inquiry or the family?

What was the extent, purpose and authorisation for any surveillance of Duwayne Brooks and his solicitor?
