GREATER MANCHESTER POLICE CHIEF CONSTABLE GRAINGER TRIAL TO BE PICKETED
 

Star date: 9th February 2014

JUSTICE 4 GRAINGER TO PICKET PETER FAHY TRIAL

Justice4Grainger Protest
Monday 10th February 12noon
Crown Prosecution Service HQ

Following the Crown Prosecution Service decision not to prosecute the police officer who shot dead Salford man Anthony Grainger, tomorrow the Justice4Grainger campaign is set to protest outside the CPS Manchester office against what it calls the `farce of a trial' of GMP Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy who is being charged in London under Health and Safety law for the killing.

Full details here…


Back in January, the Crown Prosecution Service announced that it would not be bringing charges against the Greater Manchester Police officer who shot and killed Broughton's Anthony Grainger in a Culcheth car park in 2012 – instead preferring to charge GMP Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy under the Health and Safety at Work Act, which left Anthony Grainger's parents "bitterly disappointed" (see previous Salford Star article – click here)

Tomorrow, Monday 10th February, sees the trial of Sir Peter Fahy at Westminster Magistrates Court and the Justice4Grainger campaign is set to protest outside the Crown Prosecution HQ at Sunlight House, Quay Street, in Manchester at the same time. A statement from the group reads…

"Sir Peter Fahy, we presume, won't even attend the hearing as he takes no responsibility or liability whatsoever re our Anthony's killing…The Crown Prosecution Service have decided to charge Fahy but they know the outcome will be nothing more than a fine, what you call a `slap on the wrist'.

"We will be there in defiance, as their decision was the lowest charge they could get away with, with no consequence whatsoever apart from the tax payer paying a fine if Fahy pleads guilty. If Fahy does not plead guilty, this will be another tactic to push away our Inquest as they, the establishment, know that we can't  have our Inquest until this farce of a trial has ended."

Justice4Grainger Protest
Monday 10th February 12noon
Crown Prosecution Service HQ
Sunlight House, Quay Street
Manchester M3 3LU

Justice4Grainger will also be holding a vigil and march for Anthony Grainger on 2nd March, starting 1pm at Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester

Cheers for the article but the 'trial' of Fahy is taking place in London at Westminster magistrates court where there will be a demonstration. But the protest by J4G is outside the offices of the CPS in Manchester condemning their farcical and corrupt decision not to charge the police officers involved in the killing of Anthony.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
