Notes to editors
- Mohamed Nur (DOB: 26.05.89) has been charged with murder, three counts of wounding with intent and two counts of possession of an offensive weapon.
- Lisa Ramsarran is the Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor of the pan-London Homicide Unit in CPS London North.
- The function of the CPS is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for a criminal court to consider.
- The CPS assessment of any case is not in any sense a finding of, or implication of, any guilt or criminal conduct. It is not a finding of fact, which can only be made by a court, but rather an assessment of what it might be possible to prove to a court, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.
