Five police officers and a solicitor could face criminal charges over the death of a man restrained and forced to the ground during a routine stop-and-search operation six years ago.
The officers face possible charges of manslaughter and perverting the course of action after it emerged that they had changed their initial accounts of how Habib Ullah, 39, died at a car park in High Wycombe in July 2008.
Mr Ullah, who was with a group of men in a car, went limp after he was forced to the ground and restrained by officers who thought that he had drugs in his mouth. He died later in hospital.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) confirmed yesterday that it had passed a file to prosecutors.
