TEHRAN, May 3 (ICANA) – The British government's use of force in deportations has led legal charity Inquest to call for a parliamentary investigation, Inquest co-director Deborah Coles says.

Britain Blamed for Inhuman Deportations

The death of Jimmy Mubenga, who died in October 2010 as he was forced to leave the country, caused the charity to investigate such cases.

The middle-aged Angolan man was taken by three G4S private security guards to the Heathrow airport in London.

Coles asked the government to assign a committee inquiry to investigate the role of private companies in the deporting process. She also called for a close look to the complaints over injuries, deaths and inhuman behavior in deportation cases.

"The death of Jimmy Mubenga follows a pattern of complaints about the use of excessive force against people being deported," said Coles.

"Investigations are lengthy, thus delaying public scrutiny into the wider issues this death raises - resulting in the risk of further deaths and serious injuries.”

The charity sent its request to international human rights activists and asked the United Nations to send its special reporter to investigate the secrets surrounding Mubenga's death. The inquest believes the case involved torture.

Adrienne Makenda Kambana, Mubenga's widow, said she backs Inquest's call for an inquiry.

"Jimmy was a loving and caring father and husband. My children and I don't understand why he was being deported. We don't want this to happen to anyone else. We want to know why did he die?" said Kambana, who lives in London with the couple's children.
