Jean Charles de Menezes was an illegal immigrant and should have been deported in 2003. If the UK immigration service had done their job he wouldn't have been shot 8 times in the head by the London police on July 22, 2005.
Mr Menezes arrived in the UK on 13 March 2002 and was granted entry for six months as a visitor.
He applied for leave to remain as a student, which was approved and he was granted leave to remain until 30 June 2003.
Here's how British officials put it:
