Murdered schoolgirl’s family lose case against police

The family of murdered schoolgirl Arsema Dawit have had their bid to sue the Metropolitan Police, for neglecting their warnings about her murderer, thrown out by Judge Charles Freeland QC at Central London county court. He told the family: “The police do not generally owe a duty to members of the public in the detection and prevention of crime. The general sense of public duty that motivates police officers is unlikely to be improved by the imposition of such liability on their duty to investigate crime”.
