Family of George Nkencho Ask Coroner To Consider Current Policing Structures

The family of George Nkencho has asked the Dublin Coroner to consider the wider implications of a young black man being shot by gardai.

The inquest has been opened and adjourned at the Dublin Coroner’s Court.

The 27 year old black man was shot by gardai multiple times outside his home in Clonee last December while allegedly brandishing a knife.

The family asked the coroner to consider the wider implications of a young black man dying at the hands of a white police officer.

Around 30 protestors gathered outside the coroner’s court as the inquest opened.

Speaking outside the inquest, George’s sister Grateful Nkencho said the family have many unanswered questions.
