Anthony Grainger: Mother vows to fight for secret evidence release - BBC News

[size=inherit]The mother of a man shot dead by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has vowed to fight to release the secret evidence shrouding part of his case.[/size]

Anthony Grainger, 36, was killed during a covert operation in March 2012.

Marina Schofield, from Salford, who lost a legal bid to reveal the sensitive material, said she would continue to try to have it made public.

She said lessons needed to be learned so "no other mother gets that knock at the door".

Mr Grainger was one of a group under surveillance in Operation Shire suspected of planning commercial robberies.

Armed officers had been wrongly briefed that he was armed and violent.

Some of the intelligence has never been disclosed to his family.

Last month High Court judges rejected Ms Schofield's claim that intercept evidence should be admissible in prosecutions where charges relate to "a lethal criminal offence by a state agent".

Modern hi-fi systems are the same, no headphone outlet, modern TV's and audio devices are Bluetooth enabled, check your TV's features and get some Bluetooth headphones.

But was it a scam on the NHS?
Are suppliments a scam?.
After taking vit's D and C all winter and a Flu jab. I still got Flu.
Nothing new,it has happened once before. Won't waste money on vitamins again.
