Star date: 10th February 2014

UK JUSTICE BRANDED A FARCE AT CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE PROTEST RALLY FOR ANTHONY GRAINGER

"This is orchestrated by the establishment to…keep the family from getting any kind of justice" Wesley Ahmed

A protest rally was held this lunchtime outside the Manchester headquarters of the Crown Prosecution Service, as campaigners learned that Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy had pleaded not guilty to charges relating to the death of Salford man Anthony Grainger, in what they called a `farcical trial'.

The Justice4Grainger campaign took its protest right into the heart of lunchtime Manchester today, holding a rally outside the headquarters of the Crown Prosecution Service, as word spread that Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy had pleaded not guilty at London's Westminster Magistrates Court to health and safety charges surrounding the police shooting of Broughton's Anthony Grainger.

In January, the Greater Manchester Police officer who shot and killed Anthony Grainger was not prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service. Instead Fahy was charged for breaches of the Health and Safety at Work Act (for full details see previous Salford Star article – click here).

"Sir Peter Fahy has pleaded not guilty in a farcical trial where he faces no criminal responsibility or liability regarding our Anthony being shot dead on that car park in Warrington in 2012" said Wesley Ahmed of Justice4Grainger "Now the inquest has been pushed further away from us and there's a gagging order - we're not allowed to speak about the case until after the Health and Safety trial has finished.

"Obviously this is orchestrated by the establishment to take as long as it takes to keep the family from getting any kind of justice in this country" he added "Now the trial could be later this year, it could be next year, we don't know, but the longer it takes, the more they think it's going to be kicked into the long grass."

Fahy, who did not appear in court today, has been summoned to appear at Southwalk Crown Court on February 20th to fix a date for a later trial.

Speaking to campaigners on a megaphone outside the Crown Prosecution office, a spokesperson for Justice4Grainger said…

"It's nearly two years since Anthony Grainger was shot by police, he was unarmed and the two people in the car with him were unarmed. The police put the two people on trial and charged them with conspiracy to rob but they were found not guilty. Anthony Grainger was named in that charge so by implication Anthony Grainger was found not guilty. The police were proved in the court that day to have shot an innocent man.

"The Crown Prosecution Service only two weeks ago issued a statement that said they could not prosecute the coppers that were involved with the death of Anthony but what they did was instigate a farcical procedure by charging Peter Fahy the Chief Constable of Great Manchester Police under health and safety regulations.

"This was a complete farce and the corruption of justice because, even if Sir Peter Fahy was found guilty, it would not impinge upon his record at all. The GMP would be fined and therefore it would be ordinary tax payers who paid the fine.

"The whole procedure is a way that the state can deny the family of Anthony Grainger any justice... Many families have suffered at the hands of the police and we are very proud today there are representatives of other families who have faced no justice over the killing of their loved ones."

At the protest was the family of Billy Salton, who died in July 2012 `neglected by GMP', a mother representing an organisation called JENGbA, whose son was jailed for ten years after being charged with `Joint Enterprise', even though he wasn't present at the crime scene, and Janet Alder, sister of Chris Alder who is still seeking justice 16 years after his death in police custody.

After the rally - happening almost under gaze of a giant Opera House theatre banner advertising the play Dirty Rotten Scoundrels – campaigners handed in a protest petition to the Crown Prosecution Service containing thousands of signatures…

The IPCC officer Quinlan who investigated the Grainger shooting is a ex GMP police officer he also investigated the Ian Terry case police officer killed in training both these case's have come to the same result Health & Safety !! This is to much of a coincidence !! The reason why Fahy has gone not guilty is to keep the unseen evidence paperwork away from the family as long as possible this is a game to the Scum GMP they will fall on their own sword !!!!! ;o)

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

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.

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

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.
