A POST-MORTEM examination failed to establish the cause of death of a man who died just hours after being released from police custody, an inquest heard today.
Mohamud Hassan, 24, was arrested at his home in Cardiff on the evening of January 8 on suspicion of a breach of the peace, but was released the next morning without charge.
The father-to-be was then found dead at his flat in Newport Road later on January 9, with his family claiming that he was left bloodied and bruised after being assaulted by officers.
Now the inquest has heard the cause of Mr Hassan’s death was “unascertained” following a post-mortem by Dr Deryk James of the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
Coroner Graeme Hughes acknowledged an ongoing Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) investigation into Mr Hassan’s death was “in its infancy.”
One officer who brought Mr Hassan to the station in a police van has already been issued a misconduct notice, but its highest punishment is only a written warning.
Lawyer Hilary Brown, representing Mr Hassan’s family, has called for the immediate suspension of the officer involved.
