An inquest will be held later this year to investigate the circumstances leading up to Nuno’s death which was a tragedy. Following his arrest on university campus, he became unresponsive in the back of a police vehicle and later died in hospital. We hope that the inquest is thorough and fearless and that it can contribute to preventing deaths such as these in the future. We the undersigned show full support and solidarity with the family of Nuno and their calls for answers and justice. Nuno was a Black student with a bright future ahead of him.
Our campuses must be safe spaces for Black Students and police contact must not end like this.
