Statement on today's disciplinary hearing of PC Simon Harwood

Ian's family attended today's Metropolitan Police disciplinary hearing of PC Simon Harowwd, held in public in west London. Speaking on behalf of the Ian Tomlinson Family Campaign, Ian's son Paul King said:
"We came here expecting a disciplinary hearing. There has been no hearing. We expected the Met to rule on whether it's officer killed Ian. The Met has basically gone 'no comment'.

It's a whitewash. It's like they have just let PC Harwood resign. The conflicting verdicts of the inquest and criminal court still need to be resolved.

We haven't given up, we will now be looking to the civil courts for the final judgement on who killed our dad."
