Stephen Sackur speaks to Julie Hambleton, founder of the Birmingham bombings campaign group Justice for the 21. Is it now too late to get to the truth?
Stephen Sackur speaks to Julie Hambleton, founder of Justice for the 21. In November 1974 the IRA bombed two pubs in Birmingham and murdered twenty one people. More than 44 years later the inquest into those deaths was re-opened, attended by the families of the victims, including Julie Hambleton, who lost her sister Maxine. During the hearings one witness, a convicted former IRA man, named four alleged perpetrators; but justice in this terrible case has never been done. Is it now too late to get to the truth?
