      Hillsborough suspect files passed to Crown Prosecution Service

      Files on 23 people and organisations involved in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster have been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service.

      An inquests jury concluded last April that the 96 victims of the FA Cup semi-final tragedy were unlawfully killed.

      The jury found match the commander, Ch Supt David Duckenfield, responsible for manslaughter by gross negligence.

      Prosecutors will now decide whether to bring criminal charges against the unnamed 23.

      The announcement follows the conclusion of two criminal investigations that were ordered in 2012.

      Operation Resolve examined events up to and including the day of the disaster, including the police planning and preparation, ground design and the emergency response, while the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigation looked into allegations of a cover-up in the days and weeks that followed.

      Fifteen of the 23 suspects relate to Operation Resolve and eight to the IPPC investigation, but the names of individuals and organisations named in the files passed to prosecutors have not been made public.

      Some of those previously named as suspects have died and cannot therefore be prosecuted.

      Charges being considered include:
      Gross negligence manslaughter
      Perverting the course of justice
      Misconduct in a public office
      Offences under the Safety at Sports Grounds Act and the Health and Safety at Work Act
      Misconduct in a public office
      Perverting the course of justice
      Conspiring to pervert the course of justice


      The CPS will also consider "any other relevant offences" on the evidence presented by both investigation teams, the IPCC said.

      More than 170 allegations of police misconduct continue to be investigated by both the IPCC and Operation Resolve.

      Families of those who died in the Sheffield tragedy have campaigned for more than 25 years to have individuals or public bodies held to account.

      Giving evidence at the Hillsborough Inquests, former South Yorkshire Ch Supt Duckenfield accepted his failure to close a tunnel was the "direct cause of the deaths of 96 people".

      In his recent book, former chief constable Sir Norman Bettison, revealed that he was being treated as a suspect by the IPCC in mid-2015.

      At the inquests, he said he was not part of a black propaganda unit set up to blame Liverpool fans.

      It is not known whether his name has been put forward for a charging decision.

      The IPCC probe is the biggest criminal investigation into alleged police misconduct ever conducted in England and Wales.

      It's understood the CPS may take up to six months to consider all the evidence.

      This is far more important news than any transfer stuff.  Nearly 28 years in the making and not quite there yet, nevertheless it's very welcome.

      Potentially another 6 months.

      15 of the 23 cases are for the causes of the disaster and the other 8 into the police cover up.

      Over to you CPS.

      As long as they are found guilty I'm not sure I'd be that bothered about custodial sentences (unless of course the judge insisted they served them in Walton Jail !!!)
      However I would expect that they would lose the trappings of titles, honours , pensions etc.

      Any comment prejudicial to a perceived fair process could result in a charge of contempt of court, either to an individual or in this case a forum carrying those views.

      What would be the implications of guilty verdicts on these individuals?
      Would they forfeit titles, pensions and all the associated benefits of their fraudulent status?
      Margaret Aspinall is quoted as saying she hopes today marks the end of her 28 year fight for justice, amen to that.

      Will the defendants shed any more light on their paymasters?
      Will they disclose why they were promoted beyond their station after lying about the tragedy?
      How far up the ladder of evil is it possible to climb?

      I'm seeing people tweeting to be careful what is said about the people charged on social media because it could bias a trial.....what happened to freedom of speech (in England)?

      If people want to call those charged mass murderers that should be their business and their right. How could that affect a trial?

      Venting your spleen on the internet isn't going to make you feel better but could give a lawyer a get out for one of those charged if one of the jurors could be proven to have been influenced by something they read on the internet.

      People will be voicing their opinions in households and workplaces all over the world but bitching on facebook, twitter etc isn't required anyway is it?

      But social media is global isn't it? So people from around the world could make comments that are just as easily read by those in Engerland as in Bangladesh.

      I wouldn't want justice to be perverted in any way, and I hope those implicated get what they deserve, I just find it hilarious that the average citizen isn't allowed to have their say (regardless of its vitriol or validity) because it could somehow taint the process of justice.

      I can understand those in the media not being allowed to provide commentary (although that's still odd as freedom of the press is a cornerstone of a free society) but there'd be no foolproof way to prove what was said on social media came from a British citizen.

      Sorry, it just seems weird to me. Failing all that, I hope the families of the 96 and all those personally affected get a final amount of closure and justice.

      Hillsborough families spend 28 years in a quest for justice for their dead relatives.  On the day action is announced people want to argue about contempt of court laws of the United Kingdom.

      I do wonder about some of you.

      Well done to the investigation teams on uncovering enough evidence that the CPS deem them worthy of prosecutions - all too often high profile cases seem to fall by the wayside.

      Seeing as my posts were deleted i suggest we lock this thread down in case anyone else mentions this case in an unfavorable way.
      Perhaps we should also petition all the newspapers not to run stories about and has someone already been in touch with Facebook and Twitter to make sure they block any tweets or posts about it. Perhaps we can also ask Google to block any searches on the subject.

      Absolutely made up with the decision by CPS, trials to start beginning of August.

      This is for the victims, the survivors, the families and everyone else whoever fought to get to this point. Whenever you were asked "what is it you lot want"

      THIS IS WHAT WE WANTED!!

      Deleting your posts should do the trick I would say.

      I was at my local 8-ball comp tonight when I saw the news break that charges had been laid. The news made me happy, which then made me sad - because a victory in such a case is so hollow, because 96 should never have perished. As such lies the catch-22. We will never forget. On a day of victory in light of the events, we still forever hold the pain in our hearts for those that never came home - it will never die.

      Justice for the 96. Love for the 96.

      I'm merely trying to understand the legal issue of speaking out publiclly as it's foreign to me, I apologize if this was taken the wrong way, like I said, the important thing is that justice is served and the families have closure. Far too long have they had to wait.

      What a day, 28 years and that b***ard Duckenfield is going to have to finally face up to what he did. He's been a free a man for longer than some of the victims lived.

      But today isn't a day to dwell on such things, justice is finally being brought.

      Is the person from Sheffield Wednesday being charged because of nobody being there to direct people into side pends when the center pen became crowded? Sorry for my ignorance of UK law. These people standing trial for what happened is the right thing, 28 years too late.

      Obviously delighted with the outcome and for the families. But rewatching the footage  on the news is heartbreaking. The cover ups  and lies my God.

      I'm seeing people tweeting to be careful what is said about the people charged on social media because it could bias a trial.....what happened to freedom of speech (in England)?

      If people want to call those charged mass murderers that should be their business and their right. How could that affect a trial?

      A tweet from a high profile person that would garner the attention of a large audience is one example.

      Jurors have to be able to make their decisions free from potentially prejudicial influences, solely on the facts and issues before them.

      We are finally here, so let justice be done.

      Delighted for the families, they have suffered long enough, and now the end is almost upon them, nothing will ever ease the 28 yrs of family, of weddings , births, birthdays, christmasses, holiday's etc they missed with those they lost, closure is what is important and today they took a step closer,
      i just hope that justice is finally served on those responsible for 28 years of suffering, August can't come quick enough.

      My heart goes out to all those families of the '96', you fought for those you lost right to the very end, God bless you all.

      I don't think justice can ever be achieved to right the wrongs and heal the wounds of those affected.  However, retribution is long overdue.  Hopefully this brings some sense of peace and/or closure to the families of those lost.

      Hillsborough families spend 28 years in a quest for justice for their dead relatives.  On the day action is announced people want to argue about contempt of court laws of the United Kingdom.

      I do wonder about some of you.

      Well done to the investigation teams on uncovering enough evidence that the CPS deem them worthy of prosecutions - all too often high profile cases seem to fall by the wayside.

      I've read back from the last post in the thread beside the one I was quoted in and not going to read back further than yours (above) JD.

      Really?

      Sir Bernard Ingram, Sir David Duckenfield - someone is taking the f**king piss.
      The f**king witch's accomplice advising her through the miner's strike and Hillsborough, Duckenfield - a disposable liar.
      The medieval appendage is used to infer superiority and suggest the bearer is beyond reproach, the peasants in those times would be accustomed to barbaric practices as a way of perpetuating a most immoral tradition.

      Peasants and barbaric, medieval practices are unjust, evil traits respectively and have been consigned to history.
      Both Ingram and Duckenfield are evil traits and likewise deserving of punishment and consigning to history

      From what I've seen mate it doesn't appear as though the media are taking sides, reporting the scandalous facts word for word.
      In the cold light of day the fuckers cannot do anything else.
      We are all aware that some in their number have told the most horrific lies consistently and over a number of years; those dark days have gone and the f**king liars of the establishment are being brought to account.

      The question is how far up the establishment ladder of corruption can the proceedings delve?

      The CPS has stated there will be three separate trials for the prosecution of six men facing charges over the Hillsborough disaster.
      Former Chief Supt. David Duckenfield faces 95 charges of manslaughter and 5 other senior figures are to be prosecuted over the 1989 disaster.
      The location of the trials has yet to be decided.

      What would be the implications of guilty verdicts on these individuals?
      Would they forfeit titles, pensions and all the associated benefits of their fraudulent status?
      Margaret Aspinall is quoted as saying she hopes today marks the end of her 28 year fight for justice, amen to that.

      Will the defendants shed any more light on their paymasters?
      Will they disclose why they were promoted beyond their station after lying about the tragedy?
      How far up the ladder of evil is it possible to climb?



      The separate trials of Duckenfield and 5 other defendants will hopefully expose the veiled establishment deceit that contributed to the 28 years of injustice that continued with the help of the above mentioned.

      The Hillsborough families will be able to access funds for travelling and incurred expenses when the proceedings against those accused begins in Preston this week.
      The JCP Fund Trustees have said they will step in while the CPS dithers and pisses about as is their way, while considering the application.

      Meanwhile the legal expenses for the accused establishment puppets exceeds £5m.

      Hillsborough: No further criminal charges likely over disaster and aftermath

      No more former officers are likely to face criminal prosecutions in connection to the Hillsborough tragedy and its aftermath.
       
      The Crown Prosecution Service today confirmed it will not charge two ex-West Midlands Police officers, whose actions it was probing.
       
      It was also revealed evidence linked to three former South Yorkshire Police officers would not be passed to prosecutors for consideration.
       
      In a series of announcements this morning the CPS and police watchdog the Independent Office for Police Conduct (formerly the IPCC) revealed their latest findings linked to the investigation surrounding the 1989 tragedy and what followed.
       
      The CPS had been reviewing a West Midlands Police evidence file linked to two suspects that was referred to it by the IOPC last year.
       
      West Midlands Police was the force called in to review the conduct of South Yorkshire Police officers following the disaster.
       
      The WMP officers faced allegations they “failed to investigate the cause of the Hillsborough disaster properly, either deliberately to assist South Yorkshire Police (SYP) or otherwise negligently, and/or that a misleading or incomplete file was submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions in 1990”.
       
      However, the CPS has ruled that, while cause for concern was found in the actions of both suspects, there was not enough evidence to “reach the high threshold required to prove a criminal offence”.

      The CPS added:
       
      There is evidence some aspects of the investigation were not carried out to a high standard but not none to show any deliberate plan or action by the suspects to hinder it.
         
      There is difficulty in attributing responsibility for all of the failings to these suspects.
       
      There is no evidence that, as alleged, one suspect intentionally provided an inappropriate selection of evidence to the DPP so that he did not have an accurate picture of the key evidence available.
       
      Sue Hemming, Head of Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division at the CPS, today said: “I appreciate that my decision will be disappointing to you, but I would like to reassure you that in reaching this conclusion, we have spent a significant amount of time reviewing and considering the evidence that was submitted to us.
       
      “As you know, the standard of evidence required for any criminal prosecution is high.”
       
      The CPS is not considering any other files in relation to Hillsborough.
       
      This morning, the IOPC also released details of its findings in relation to three ex-SYP officers who were considered to be suspects but whose cases had not yet been referred to the CPS.
       
      It was alleged they sought to deliberately mislead the Lord Justice Taylor inquiry, the contributions hearing and the original inquest proceedings.
       
      There was some indication that two of the three former officers may have committed a criminal offence but the CPS ruled it was not appropriate to refer their cases because they had already rejected the possibility of bringing criminal charges based on evidence reviewed in 2016. It added that no further evidence or legal matters had since been identified that could "realistically alter that view".
       
      The body confirmed the cases were not being passed to the CPS - meaning the suspects will not be prosecuted.

      Strategic lead for Hillsborough, Rachel Cerfontyne said: “At the core of my decision not to refer these SYP officers for formal charging decisions is the CPS’s clear view that charges would not be brought and the risk that a referral could cause disruption to the forthcoming Hillsborough trials.
       
      “The evidence gathered by the investigation team has been wide ranging and thorough. I have reviewed it very carefully, as I know the CPS have done.
       
      “This will now be used to determine if any officer involved in Hillsborough would have had a case to answer for misconduct if they were still serving. These findings, along with underlying evidence, will be set out in full in the Hillsborough final investigation report.”
       
      The update comes nine months after charges were announced against five men following an extensive investigation sparked by the Hillsborough Independent Panel report, published in 2012.

      Those suspects, including former Merseyside Police Chief Constable Norman Bettison, were charged with offences relating to the disaster and its aftermath, which led to the deaths of 96 Liverpool FC fans at an FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.
       
      Charges were authorised against a sixth man, matchday commander David Duckenfield, but in order to prosecute him a legal order imposed after an attempted private prosecution has to be lifted.
       
      Discussions over the lifting of that order - which if granted would see Mr Duckenfield charged with 95 counts of manslaughter by gross negligence - are currently going through the courts.

       Laws in place at the time mean he could not be charged in connection with the 96th fan to die, Tony Bland, due to the length of time Mr Bland died after the tragedy.

      Sounds about right for them!!

      Hillsborough: Duckenfield and others bid to stop prosecutions

      Six men including former police chief David Duckenfield have begun a legal bid to prevent them being prosecuted over the Hillsborough Disaster.

      They have asked a judge at Preston Crown Court to halt any future prosecutions by claiming they are an abuse of the legal process.

      A legal order imposed in 2000 would have to be lifted before Mr Duckenfield can face manslaughter charges.

      The hearing is expected to last up to two weeks.

      Mr Duckenfield faces 95 charges of gross negligence manslaughter following a fatal crush at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final which resulted in the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans.

      For legal reasons, the 73-year-old cannot be charged over the death of the 96th victim Tony Bland as he died four years after the disaster.

      The hearing will address the issue of a legal order - or 'stay' - imposed following a private prosecution 18 years ago halting future legal proceedings against the former chief superintendent.

      The Crown Prosecution Service has applied for that stay to be lifted.

      Lawyers representing the six men are expected to make their applications to judge Sir Peter Openshaw to have any forthcoming prosecutions halted.

      The full list of individuals and charges are:

      Mr Duckenfield, 73, faces manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 men, women and children

      Sir Norman Bettison, 61, faces four charges of misconduct in a public office relating to alleged lies he told about his involvement in the aftermath of Hillsborough and the culpability of fans

      Graham Mackrell, former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary, will be accused of breaching Health and Safety and Safety at Sports Grounds legislation

      Peter Metcalf, who was a solicitor acting for South Yorkshire Police, is charged with perverting the course of justice, relating to
      alleged changes to witness statements

      Former Ch Supt Donald Denton and former Det Ch Insp Alan Foster are accused of perverting the course of justice

      They have asked a judge at Preston Crown Court to halt any future prosecutions by claiming they are an abuse of the legal process.

      A legal order imposed in 2000 would have to be lifted before Mr Duckenfield can face manslaughter charges.

      The hearing is expected to last up to two weeks.

      Mr Duckenfield faces 95 charges of gross negligence manslaughter following a fatal crush at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final which resulted in the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans.

      For legal reasons, the 73-year-old cannot be charged over the death of the 96th victim Tony Bland as he died four years after the disaster.

      The hearing will address the issue of a legal order - or 'stay' - imposed following a private prosecution 18 years ago halting future legal proceedings against the former chief superintendent.

      The Crown Prosecution Service has applied for that stay to be lifted.

      Lawyers representing the six men are expected to make their applications to judge Sir Peter Openshaw to have any forthcoming prosecutions halted.

      The full list of individuals and charges are:

      Mr Duckenfield, 73, faces manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 men, women and children

      Sir Norman Bettison, 61, faces four charges of misconduct in a public office relating to alleged lies he told about his involvement in the aftermath of Hillsborough and the culpability of fans

      Graham Mackrell, former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary, will be accused of breaching Health and Safety and Safety at Sports Grounds legislation

      Peter Metcalf, who was a solicitor acting for South Yorkshire Police, is charged with perverting the course of justice, relating to
      alleged changes to witness statements

      Former Ch Supt Donald Denton and former Det Ch Insp Alan Foster are accused of perverting the course of justice

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-44443369

      Claiming an abuse of the legal process.....are they serious? An ABUSE of the legal process? And just what exactly do they think all of those years of coverups and corruption were?

      More cynical manoeuvring  to further delay justice for the 96 and their families,
      Devoid of any moral fibre and social responsibility whatever .

      Its a sham and only being done to placate people and it will be delay after delay and in the end a shambolic trial and no meaningful convictions. Fast approaching 30 years 30 f***in years and if Justice meant anything this would have been resolved  25 years ago.
      When you see Dukinfield being able to retire to protect his pension proves that the entire system is corrupt and you cant expect the Justice people are hoping for.
      Sorry to be so cynical but I cant see a good outcome to this.

      Hope all get the absolute maximum sentence, Duckenfield should be done for murder X96,

      It has taken far too long for those families to find a little solace.

      The decision to prosecute Duckenfield and four others is the result of an order lifting a stay of prosecution imposed 18 years ago.
      Questions have to be asked of who and why the stay of prosecution held secure for 18 years when the world and his wife knew Duckenfield and others were implemented in the cover up; the cover up continues with those that gave Duckenfield et al protection still not brought to book.

      No Stu. Hasn't the morality or decency to even do that. He could have plea bargained.
      Indeed he could do it at the start of the trial... just to put people through the agony of the build up.

      Book and thrown come to mind mate though why do I think that the Establishment will be there watching his back in the background pulling the strings of the judiciary.

      They let the West Midlands whitewash team off the hook then.

      could we actually see the people responsible for the death of 96 innocent lives finally punished for their Crime. Next year it will be
      30 years and these people have continued their lives and careers as if they had just had a parking fine. The thought of seeing these people in Court having to defend themselves will be most welcome but still a long long way from receiving justice

      The police for f**king up.

      Rather than trying to explain, I'd suggest go read Phil Scraton's book Hillsborough: The Truth, widely regarded as the most definitive account of the disaster and aftermath.

      I'm not surprised. It's a setup geared towards giving the benefit of the doubt to it's high status pals. This is the same CPS that failed/refused to investigate claims that were passed onto them with regards to Jimmy Savile back in 2009. They may hide behind a cloak of 'honour' and neutrality but given their record in recent years they seem anything but. A justice system still institutionally bent and prejudiced.

      Like Savile, it will only be until pus filled grubs are crawling out of his eyeballs 6 feet under that any 'judgement' will be passed on Bettison. Just the way the authorities like it.

      The establishment in all it's "glory".

      Further proof Skip that this conspiracy is deeply rooted within the establishment.
      Having finally stripped away the lies and deceit surrounding the tragedy several individuals including Bettison were identified as being culpable in the deaths of 96 innocents, the findings of a ground breaking second inquest were met with relief and a sense of victory from all concerned.

      The prosecution have put it to Duckenfield that he was directly responsible for the deaths of the 96 by failing to carry out his role as match commander to a satisfactory standard thereby compromising the safety of the spectators.

      Hillsborough scene 'set for failure'

      jurors at the trial of Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield have heard how ''the scene was almost literally set for failure''.
      Prosecutors stated that the ground's safety certificate had not been updated or amended since it was granted in 1979 - a decade before the disaster.

      Duckenfield denies the charge of gross negligence and the manslaughter of 95 Liverpool supporters.
      Ex-Sheffield Wednesday secretary Graham Mackrell denies safety breaches.
