A jury on Wednesday retired to consider its verdict in the trial of the Metropolitan Police over the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes.
The force is accused of a “catastrophic” series of errors leading to the death of the innocent Brazilian at Stockwell Tube station on July 22, 2005.
Mr de Menezes, 27, was shot seven times by specialist firearms officers after he was mistaken for failed suicide bomber Hussain Osman.
Mr Justice Henriques sent out the jury to begin its deliberations, in the fifth week of the Old Bailey trial.
The Office of the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police denies a single charge under health and safety legislation of exposing the public to risk.
