Counter-terrorism inquiry: Met Police briefing over Lee Rigby murder

30 May 2013

The Home Affairs Committee's Counter-terrorism inquiry opens with Met Police briefing over murder of Lee Rigby.

Witnesses

At 2.40pm, Tuesday 4 June 2013, Grimond Room, Portcullis House

  • Cressida Dick, Assistant Commissioner, Metropolitan Police

Committee Chairman Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP said:

"The vicious murder of Drummer Lee Rigby last week was a terrible reminder of the dangers of violent extremism which can come at any time, from outside our borders or even from within.

This session will be a vital opportunity to establish the facts in public with a briefing by the Metropolitan Police as to what happened on 22 May, the police investigation and their response.

We will be following this evidence with a major inquiry into international terrorism and crime which will end later this year."
