With the publication of the report of the Hillsborough Indepdent Panel, Hillsborough Independent Panel. Disclosed Material and Report, it is now widely accepted that South Yorkshire Police conducted a criminal conspiracy to conceal the truth about the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.
See, for example, the House of Commons debate on the Hillsborough Independent Panel report which took place on 22nd October 2012: House of Commons Hansard 22 October 2012 (pt 0001).
Further, it seems highly likely that West Midlands Police were party to a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
A fundamental question that requires further public examination is whether individual Police officers similarly conceal and fabricate evidence on a smaller scale on an "as needed" basis.
In other words why should the Public and the courts trust evidence from any Police officer?
I intend to examine a range of questions on a new blog, Hillsborough: What is the truth?. The questions to be examined go much wider than simply whether or not trust in the Police is or is not merited.
Some of the issues I hope to examine are set out in the initial post on the Hillsborough: What is the truth?" blog. See the initial post here: The purpose of the Hillsborough: What is the Truth? blog .
