Louise secures meeting with Home Secretary over Orgreave

Louise, a delegation of MPs and the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign have today secured a meeting with the Home Secretary to press the case for a full public inquiry into the events surrounding the Orgreave coking plant in June 1984.

 

The shock decision by the IPCC not to investigate the serious criminal allegations surrounding the South Yorkshire Police Force, angered many and Louise had joined with fellow MPs to call for a meeting with the Home Secretary to press the case for a full public inquiry.

The Home Secretary has agreed to meet with the delegation of MPs and in light of the seriousness of the allegations against South Yorkshire Police, including perjury, perverting the course of justice, misconduct in a public office, and whether the actions of the police were influenced by the highest levels of government. Finally given the scale of public concern, the case for a full public inquiry into the events of Orgreave is clear.
