Hillsborough families issue statement through lawyers

The Hillsborough families have issued a statement through their legal firm, saying they do not intend to 'indulge in speculation' about the outcome of the criminal trials.

The families have pursued and achieved the truth and a measure of Justice in the Inquests but they have always known that accountability is the most difficult objective.

They remain keen to see the criminal process properly pursued for those who have been charged and given that the rights of the defendants should be respected they do not intend to indulge in speculation about the outcome of criminal trials.

They do however hope that the memories of their loved ones and the integrity of the fans who attended Hillsborough will be respected during the process.
