A Portuguese man who died after being restrained by British police could have had links to a group known as the Portuguese Mafia.

Jurors in the inquest of 25-year-old car trader Edir Frederico Da Costa have heard he was restrained face down by police who sprayed CS gas.

He reportedly died after a plastic bag of drugs became lodged in his airway.

The court heard the Portuguese Mafia is a group who hang around in parts of east London.

The inquest is scheduled to last four weeks.


Portuguese Mafia???? It’s more like an African mafia!
