Commission a review into racial inequalities in the criminal justice system

Petition Details

We urge the Government to launch an independent review into racial inequalities in the criminal justice system, including:

• Unwarranted arrests
• Stop & search
• Unfair outcomes from a civil/criminal judicial proceeding
• Length of sentences
• Deaths in custody

Additional Information

We urge the Government to review issues of racial disparity rates in relation to stop and search, arrest, prosecution and sentencing.

Black people are four times as likely to be in prison than white people.

Dramatic rise in Muslims prisoners, 18% in 2021 compared with 8% in 2002.
