Actions of South Wales Police officers did not cause or contribute to the death of Mohamud Hassan

An independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Mohamud Hassan in Cardiff in 2021 has found no evidence that the actions of officers caused or contributed to his death.


The findings of the Independent Office for Police Conduct investigation have also confirmed that there was no evidence to support allegations that Mr Hassan was treated less favourably because of his race, or that he had been assaulted by officers.


The outcome of the IOPC investigation has been published following an inquest into Mr Hassan’s death which recorded an open verdict with the Coroner telling the jury there was no evidence to support a finding that any acts or omissions of the police or medical professionals contributed to Mr Hassan’s death.


Mr Hassan died several hours after being released from police custody having been arrested to prevent a breach of the peace following reports of a disturbance at a property in Newport Road, Cardiff in January 2021.


Assistant Chief Constable Joanna Maal said: “We can only imagine how difficult this period of time has been for Mohamud Hassan’s family and the pain and grief that they have endured since his death.


“This case has been the subject of much independent and public scrutiny. Now that the facts have been published and heard during the inquest proceedings we hope that answers have been provided to the many questions which have been raised.”
