Prosecutors get files on 23 Hillsborough disaster suspects

Hillsborough investigators have passed files relating to 23 suspects to the Crown Prosecution Service, a spokesman for the two criminal investigations into the disaster has said.

The inquiries into the tragedy, which happened at the FA Cup semi-final on April 15 1989, were launched by the watchdog Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and Operation Resolve following the publication of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report in 2012.

A statement released on behalf of the two investigations said 15 of the suspects related to the probe into the causes of the disaster, while eight related to the IPCC inquiry into the alleged police cover-up.

Hillsborough suspect files passed to Crown Prosecution Service

Files on 23 people and organisations involved in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster have been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

An inquests jury concluded last April that the 96 victims of the FA Cup semi-final tragedy were unlawfully killed.

The jury found the match commander, Ch Supt David Duckenfield, responsible for manslaughter by gross negligence.

Prosecutors will now decide whether to bring criminal charges against the unnamed 23.
