The One London Party has renewed its call for the government to hold a full public enquiry into the July 7th terror attacks after survivors and victims’ relatives announced they’re seeking a judicial review of the Home Office’s decision to turn down their request for an enquiry.
Peter Hulme-Cross, the One London Party Member who sits on the London Assembly’s 7th July Committee, said “over a year and a half ago, when the Assembly Committee’s report was published, the One London Party called publicly for a full independent enquiry into the events of 7th July 2005. At the time, our call was dismissed by the other parties as ‘unnecessary’.”
“It has since emerged that two of the bombers were known to the police and intelligence agencies more than a year before the attacks and had been photographed and bugged by surveillance officers.”
Mr Hulme-Cross said “the Tories have since changed their minds and now support an enquiry, and we hope the government will now realise how important it is to survivors and bereaved relatives to have a proper independent enquiry that can investigate every aspect surrounding that tragic day.”
