G4S faces damages claim over killing of Jimmy Mubenga


The family of an Angolan man who died after being restrained by three G4S guards has launched civil proceedings against the security services multinational after an inquest jury found that he had been unlawfully killed on a plane intended to deport him.

Jimmy Mubenga, 46, was judged by a majority verdict on Tuesday to have been killed in October 2010 on board an aeroplane at Heathrow airport that was bound for Angola, after he was forcibly restrained for more than half an hour by three guards from the private security firm: Stuart Tribelnig, Terry Hughes and Colin Kaler.

The circumstances surrounding Mubenga’s death were made public in a Guardian investigation shortly after his death. A subsequent investigation by the paper into forced removals exposed wide concerns among guards about the restraining techniques used during deportations.
