No inquiry into Glasgow asylum seeker deaths
Officials in Scotland will not conduct an inquiry into the deaths of three asylum seekers who fell from a block of flats in Glasgow two years ago.
Russian refugees Serguei, Tatiana and Stepan Serykh died when they fell from the 15th floor of one of the Red Road tower blocks in the Springburn area of north east Glasgow on 7 March 2010.
Their application to remain in the UK had been refused and they had been told they had to leave their flat.
The family had not, however, been issued with a removal order at the time of their deaths.
Charity Positive Action in Housing called for an inquiry into the deaths but the Crown Office in Scotland has decided not to pursue any further action.
In a statement the Crown Office said: ‘The matter was reported to Crown Counsel who have fully considered all the circumstances and have concluded that it is not in the public interest to hold a fatal accident inquiry.’
