Following the murder of Mr Bijan Ebrahimi in July 2013, Safer Bristol Executive Board decided to conduct a review of the management of circumstances leading to his death by all agencies and organisations involved in order to elicit any lessons that need to be learned. The review process was identified in order to employ a straightforward and un-bureaucratic approach to identifying the key points of learning for all the organisations involved and stimulate any necessary action with the minimum of delay.
This report examines agency and organisation responses and support given to Mr Bijan Ebrahimi, a resident of Brislington, Bristol, since arriving in the city and before his death. The objectives of this review are to examine the involvement and actions of individual organisations that had contact with Mr Ebrahimi before his death in order to extract learning, improve practice wherever necessary and prevent future incidents of this type.
NB. The review was originally completed in January 2014 but has been updated to reflect the findings of an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission and associated representations made by members of Mr Ebrahimi’s family.
