Chhokar tribute: 'Loving son whose parents fought for justice'

The family of Surjit Singh Chhokar have put victim's rights at the heart of the justice system, says their lawyer.

Ronnie Coulter had been found guilty, after a second trial, of the murder of Mr Chhokar in Overtown in November 1998.

Criticism of how the original case was handled led to a campaign for the retrial.

Lawyer Aamer Anwar addressed the media outside Glasgow High Court: "Surjit was a loving son, father and brother, who was lucky to have two stubborn parents who refused to be silenced as they fought for justice as a right and not a privilege".
