Updated: Sep 12, 2022



Imran Khan and Partners act for the family of Yassar Yaqub who was fatally shot by an officer of West Yorkshire Police, anonymised as ‘V39’, on 2 January 2017 on the M62 motorway near Bradford.

The shooting occurred after unmarked police vehicles containing covert firearms officers forced two cars to perform a ‘hard stop’ on a slip road of the M62 (at junction 24), in the context of ‘Operation Fillview’.

The Inquest will begin on 16 September 2022 at Leeds Crown Court before His Honour Judge Kearle QC and a jury.

The family are presented by Imran Khan QC and Daniel Lemberger Cooper of Imran Khan and Partners, and Michael Mansfield QC of Nexus chambers and Paul Clark of Garden Court chambers.
