Brother of Stephen Lawrence receives racist threat

THE brother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence has received a racist threat after publicity surrounding his complaint that police had stopped him up to 25 times.

A message sent to the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust was the first time that Stuart has been targeted directly in the 20 years since his brother died, his lawyer Imran Khan said.

The letter or document, received by the trust on 16 January, has now been passed to the police.

Mr Khan said: “He has never received any threat before this time. He has kept pretty much in the background. I can only assume that this was a result of the publicity that had appeared directly prior.”

Scotland Yard confirmed that it is investigating the racist threat.
