Camden couple get five-figure payout over assault claims

Posted on 11th December 2017

A couple who say police officers assaulted them in their own home have received a five-figure settlement.

Aldires Bugia, of Camden, said an officer “kicked open” her front door in April 2013 and two officers started punching her husband.

The Metropolitan Police believed a man wanted in connection with a drug deal was at the flat.

It made the payment to settle an out-of-court a claim of unlawful arrest and police brutality.

Ms Bugia said she and her husband, who has not given his full name, were woken up by six officers in the middle of the night.

Susie Labinjoh, Joint-Head of Civil Liberties, said they would have never taken legal action if the Met had apologised.
