'Paddy Shennan’s piece focusing on justice for the 96 is vital in ensuring that the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service brings to justice those guilty of the ‘unlawful killing’ of the 96 (Echo 27 June 2017).
Amidst the political turmoil, appalling terrorist events, the Grenfell catastrophe, it would be quite convenient for the authorities to unnoticed put on the back-burner any decision to charge those responsible for the Hillsborough events.
Hard hitting, uncompromising journalism is essential in ensuring that the momentum in pursuit of justice for the 96 is maintained and justice finally delivered. After 27 years of anguish the victims and their families deserve nothing less.'
Tony Mulhearn June 2017
