Inquest into death of Nuno Cardoso following restraint by Thames Valley Police opens Monday 8 July 2019

Before HM Senior Coroner for Oxfordshire Michael Salter, Oxford Coroner’s Court, County Hall, New Road, Oxford, OX1 1ND

Nuno Cardoso, a 25 year old law student from Kentish Town, died following arrest by Thames Valley Police on 24 November 2017 in Oxford. The final hearing into the inquest into his death opens on Monday (8 July) at Oxford Coroner’s Court.

Nuno was arrested and restrained before officers decided to transport him to a police station. Nuno reportedly appeared to suffer a deterioration in his health while on the way to the police station. Medical assistance was provided by police officers and paramedics, but Nuno died at the John Radcliffe Hospital later that day.

Nuno grew up in North London but had moved to Oxford in September to start a law course at college. He was bright, liked a good debate, and was excited about his future. He told his family of his ambition to be the “best lawyer in the country.” He was a big fan of Arsenal Football Club and enjoyed music and cooking for his family. He was happy and popular, and his family are devastated by his sudden death.

The inquest will explore issues relating to the decision to convey Nuno to the police station and the medical assistance sought.

Nuno’s family are represented Ruth Mellor of Saunders Law and Una Morris of Garden Court Chambers.
