TWO HUNDRED people gathered in noisy protest at Tottenham police station in north London last Saturday to remember Roger Sylvester. His father said, ‘On 11 January 1999 Roger Sylvester, a 30 year old black man, was restrained on his doorstep by eight officers from Tottenham. He sustained numerous injuries and died a week later.

‘Four years on we have yet to hear the truth of Roger’s death. We want justice and we are not going stop fighting until we get it.’ His family have now decided to seek a judicial review of the Crown Prosecution Service’s decision not to prosecute anyone.
