The 64-year-old was hit by a police car on Cannock Road, Wolverhampton, on March 14, 1989. The vehicle was responding to an emergency call. The death was ruled accidental and an investigation by police said Mrs Mahay had run out into the road.

Mr Mahay, aged 54, claims key witnesses to the crash were never called. He also says a post mortem examination into his mother, which found cirrhosis of the liver caused by alcohol abuse, was wrong.

The Petition:

For the last 29 years our family have vigorously believed that a gross injustice has reigned over my mother’s death. An unbiased Independent inquiry would conclusively reveal justice and bring Kishni Mahay dignity in death. She will be able to rest in peace and we can achieve the closure we yearn.

Kishni Mahay was killed by a police patrol car. We believe that the car was not being driven appropriately according to the road conditions. We believe that key facts were missed by the investigating team (Police Complaints Authority: PCA). The Police Officer was never prosecuted. The post mortem examination declared that Kishni Mahay was an alcoholic with Cirrhosis of the Liver, which may have confused the inquest jurors.
