Posted in de Menezes by ukliberty on October 10, 2007

A member of the surveillance team has said they were not briefed that firearms officers would be part of the operation.

One surveillance officer, codenamed Graham, said he had been in the foyer of the station when the armed officers arrived.

“I have a recollection of them shouting, vaulting, attempting to vault the barrier,” he told the court.

“I was surprised. I was shocked,” he added.

“From the briefing point of view, there had been no information that they would be part of the operation.”
