Justice for the 96

The Government today announced it would appeal against an order to release the hidden ‘Hillsborough Thatcher’ files to the public. Earlier this month, the Information Commissioner said confidential reports detailing the discussions then-PM Margaret Thatcher had in the aftermath of the 1989 stadium disaster should be made public.

The publication of the papers, said to include reports presented to the prime minister and correspondence with Home Secretary Douglas Hurd, would have come before the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel, which is currently deciding what information should be released to the public.

At the time of the Information Commissioner’s decision, the Cabinet Office said it would be wrong to put anything out before the panel had given it the green light and the families of those who lost their lives had seen it. And today, it announced it will appeal the decision. A Cabinet Office spokesman said: “We are appealing the Information Commissioner Office’s decision."

A petition has been set up asking for a full disclosure of all government documents relating to the disaster. If you're a UK citizen please sign it.

The King and Queen are supporting it:
