The Hillsborough Law – Coroners and Inquest Hearings
There is no doubt amongst honest and decent members of the public the admiration of the 96 families who over so many years had to fight for justice, rather than justice fighting for them.
“THE TRUTH HAS COME OUT AND WE MUST LEARN FROM IT.”
The “Hillsborough law” is for and behalf of those who were unlawfully killed in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster and for any future disasters that may happen. It looks at the past events so we can learn from the mistakes for the future.
The proposals are for Hillsborough Law to adopted in all Inquest Hearing that are held where public authorities, civil servants and officials and others are to be accountable.
The key issues about Hillsborough Law is for public bodies to be more accountable and to provide equality of legal representation for the bereaved families at Inquest hearing before a coroner. This is to stop the Government having deep legal pockets to represent public officials to bereaved families who may not have the money to obtain legal and expert advice.
It is hoped that the trust and fairness in the justice will help bereaved families in other disasters going forward which can only be a good thing.
We often say, that sometimes the law gets in the way of justice. We hope that he hard work and hurt following the Hillsborough disaster in not in vain.
