Mohamud Hassan death: woman faces Covid fine over Cardiff protests
Woman faces £500 fine for allegedly organising protests over man who died after night in police custody
A woman faces a £500 fine for allegedly organising protests in response to the death of a man who died hours after being released from police custody in Cardiff, because demonstrations are not allowed under Welsh government regulations.
People gathered in protest outside Cardiff Bay police station after Mohamud Hassan’s death on 9 January. His family claim he was assaulted while in custody, but the police watchdog has said there were no indications of excessive force used by officers.
