    Ian Blair ordered to appear before home secretary

    According to this article, from the Daily Mirror, Met Police chief, Ian Blair, has been ordered to appear before the home secretary, Charles Clarke because of comments made regarding the Soham murders:

    Charles Clarke is understood to be furious, despite the Met Police Commissioner making a full public apology. A Home Office source said last night: "Sir Ian has been told he has to appear in person before the Home Secretary. "The meeting will take place this week, possibly today. "I think it would be fair to describe them as showdown talks.
    Why wasn't our home secretary also furious about the blatent cover up by the police of the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes? Remember this report from August 2005 on the Met Police refusing to go along with an independent inquiry into the murder?
    As controversy raged over claims that he resisted attempts to set up an independent investigation into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes, the Brazilian electrician shot seven times in the head by armed anti-terror officers, Sir Ian said the allegations "strike to the heart of the integrity" of his force. He added: "I fundamentally reject them. There is no cover-up. I am not going to resign. I have a job to do."
    It took the police 6 days to hand over documentation regarding Mr de Menezes' murder. And now we know for a fact there was a cover up. I wonder what the police managed to hide from the independent inquiry because of that 6 day delay? See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    It's incredible that PC Blair has kept his job long enough to comment on the Soham murders.

    And hopefully the cover-up of the Stockwell killing will be unsuccessful and prosecutions will go ahead - if only because the family of Jean Charles aren't taking the whole thing lying down, rightly. They want answers and justice, and seem determined and tenacious enough to get it in the end.

    Thanks for your comment Colcam, only with the support of people like you and I towards the Menezes family will they get the justice they deserve.

    We must of course keep on insisting that real justice is carried out, and that the De Menezes family deserve to know the truth of what happened to their murdered relative last July.
