Sheku Bayoh Family To Meet Lord Advocate

26 August 2015, 07:18

The family of a man who died in police custody are to meet with Scotland's most senior legal officer.

Relatives of Sheku Bayoh, 31, will hold talks with the Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland as they continue to seek answers.

Father of two Mr Bayoh died after being detained by officers called to an incident in Hayfield Road in Kirkcaldy, Fife, on May 3.

His death is being investigated by the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) who gave an update this month to the Lord Advocate.

Attending the meeting at the Crown Office in Edinburgh will be Mr Bayoh's partner Collette Bell, his sister Kadijartu Johnson and his brother-in-law Adeyemi Johnson.

Mr Johnson said last month: ''There are too many questions and not enough answers, no transparency.''

Police Scotland said they await the conclusion of the PIRC investigation and remain committed to co-operating fully with the body's inquiries.
