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.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

Star date: 15th November 2018

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

PENDLETON TENANTS ARE FOUR YEARS FROM SAFETY

The nine blocks of dangerous flats in Pendleton, owned by Salford City Council and managed by Pendleton Together, won't be safe as buildings until 2022, according to the latest accounts posted by Pendleton Together Operating Ltd.

External cladding work, the accounts state, will be completed by 2021 but other internal fire safety measures won't be complete until 2022. Meanwhile, the company recorded a loss of £23.5million last year, and adds that the "cost of further works are estimated to be £35.5million".

PEEL HOLDINGS REFUSED PERMISSION TO BUILD HOUSING ON SALFORD GREENWAY BY SECRETARY OF STATE

Star date: 12th November 2018

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON £47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just £47 per week, or £190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
