Deputy Chief Constable Terry Woods said, "This is a truly tragic case and my thoughts are with Mr Moura's family and loved ones. Andre Moura had the right to be treated with care, respect, and dignity, and sadly some of our officers let him down. Following a three week hearing, an independent panel has made a finding of misconduct for officers PC Michael Healey, PC Ashley Hudson, PC Andrew Bebb and PC Craig O'Brien and they have received written warnings. PC Tracy Ainsworth-Wrigley was found to have no case for misconduct.
"We have sadly seen examples of instances where officers tarnish the trust which ought to come with wearing a police uniform. I hope the outcome of this hearing today demonstrates that GMP will always investigate cases of this nature and refer them for independent investigation to ensure transparency and impartiality."
