Not just him either. Hopefully they charge Bettison too...

The trial of Mr Duckenfield and Mr Mackrell is currently listed to start on 10 September.

Former solicitor Peter Metcalf and former police officers Donald Denton and Alan Foster are scheduled to go on trial in January 2019 charged with perverting the course of justice.

A hearing to determine whether former Chief Constable Sir Norman Bettison will be tried has been adjourned until August.

Bettison should have that knighthood removed too as he knowingly lied to the authorities & cheated the public while having the gall to accept the award from royalty.

Bettison not going to be tried on charges of misconduct in public office. meh.

Charges dropped against Hillsborough disaster police chief Sir Norman Bettison .


Sir Norman Bettison will not be prosecuted for charges of misconduct in a public office following the Hillsborough disaster after the Crown Prosecution Service said the case would be discontinued at Preston Crown Court.

The 62-year-old was charged with four counts of misconduct in a public office, relating to alleged lies he told about his role in the aftermath of the tragedy in which 96 Liverpool fans died.

Submissions on an application to stay the proceedings against the former Merseyside and West Yorkshire chief constable were heard by judge Sir Peter Openshaw at Preston Crown Court as around a dozen relatives of some of the 96 victims of the disaster sat in the public gallery.

Bettison, who was a chief inspector at the time of the FA Cup semi-final on April 15, 1989, was accused of untruthfully describing his role in the South Yorkshire Police response as "peripheral".

He was alleged to have made the comment to then chief inspector of constabulary Sir David O'Dowd, in 1998, when he applied for the job of chief constable in Merseyside.

Obviously disappointing but will go for review. Don't know enough about the basis of the case against him, can it really have been so dependent on eyewitness accounts?

Predictable outcome. The establishment protects it's own as usual. C*nts.

Duckenfield is responsible for the 96 deaths, and has had to live with that, and will probably be convicted. But the cover up, and deflection of blame onto the fans... that cannot be ignored and should always have been the focus of any prosecutions.

There is surely enough evidence elsewhere of the coverup from the rank and file police who have admitted that they were told to change their stories. Even these conflicting stories sound like they have been engineered as another coverup.

I'm not from Liverpool so was initially hesitant to comment on this.

The radio news report I was listening to said that the case was dropped because two witnesses changed their story and a third died. I'm reluctant to comment on that but it sounds a bit strange?
