The second part of the bill calls for equal treatment of victims with the public authorities involved in the investigations and inquiries.
If adopted, the new law would mean that officials would have to come clean in cases of misconduct and negligence and proactively cooperate in investigations, inquiries and inquiries.
This law would require officials to come clean about misconduct and omissions
Attorney Elkan Abrahamson of Broudie, Jackson and Canter Attorneys has launched a “Just Giving” fundraiser to raise more support and money to make the Hillsborough Act a reality.
So far, a growing number of MPs have given their public support to the bill, but there are still some parliamentary hurdles to overcome.
“INQUEST, a charity that provides expertise on state-related deaths and supports bereaved families, will take on a campaigner if we raise enough money.
He said: “The Hillsborough Act is supported by MPs from all parties, but the government is doing nothing to get it passed.
“We need a petition calling for a debate in Parliament, and we need an activist who will work to ensure that the bill is brought before Parliament.
“All funds raised will go to INQUEST and its work alongside families seeking truth, justice and accountability.
Today £545 was donated to a target of £250,000.
Mr. Abrahamson said: “The investigation of state-related deaths is characterized by an institutionalized culture of delay, denial and defense.
In recent weeks pressure has been brought to bear on Prime Minister Theresa May to support a new law in Hillsborough – and to create a “lasting legacy” for the families of the 96.
“There is concern that this is already happening again with Grenfell, with authorities and private institutions denying responsibility before the fire even started.
“Public institutions routinely cover their misconduct with taxpayers’ money.
The Hillsborough Act was first discussed after the families of the 96 were forced to defend themselves against accusations of fans without tickets who had drunk too much during the recent investigations of the disaster on April 15, 1989.
“We must put an end to this and make it a legal obligation to tell the truth and to cooperate proactively in the investigation and inquiry”.
