"All interested persons agree that a verdict of unlawful killing could only be left to you if you could be sure that a specific officer had committed a very serious crime: murder or manslaughter,"
All interested persons?
As Craig Murray said '....'Name Tony Blair, Jack Straw, Alistair Campbell, John Scarlett, John Kerr, Peter Ricketts, Richard Stagg and John Williams as the offenders (take my word for it as someone who was in the FCO's Senior Management Structure of the time, they are the main offenders).'
Yeah, sure, interested persons.
Sure, one refers to the the JCdM case, the other refers to the 'dodgy dossier'.
However, both show the Executive at its murderous, lying best.
Update, 12 December 08
'The jury at the inquest into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes today rejected Scotland Yard's claim that he was lawfully killed as part of an anti-terrorism operation.
Banned by the coroner, Sir Michael Wright, from returning a verdict of unlawful killing, the five men and five women decided on an open verdict – the most critical that was available to them.
In a series of answers to a list of crucial questions, they dismissed the testimony of the senior firearms officer who shot De Menezes – suggesting they did not believe the officer was acting in self-defence.
The jury found that the firearms officer, C12, did not shout "armed police" before shooting De Menezes and that the Brazilian did not move towards him aggressively, prompting the fatal shot.
In a statement, De Menezes's cousin Patricia Armani Da Silva said the jury would have gone further and recorded a verdict of unlawful killing "had they not been gagged by the coroner".
"The jury's verdict is a damning indictment of the multiple failures of the police and the lies they told," she said.'
