This week, when a jury at the Old Bailey found three G4S guards not guilty of the manslaughter of Jimmy Mubenga on board a plane at Heathrow on 12 October 2010, few thought of the impact of the decision on his wife, Adrienne, or his family.
Throughout the last four years she has persisted in a campaign to find out what happened to her husband that fateful day and to hold those responsible to account.
She began her quest with a march from the Angolan Embassy to the Home Office just a month after his death, on which she was joined by hundreds of protestors. She had to wait two months to bury her husband and, in the same week as his funeral, she spoke to the Home Affairs Committee in the Houses of Parliament about the family’s experience.
