Justice for PC Yvonne Fletcher

My name is John Murray. Yvonne Fletcher was my partner and good friend. And yet, on the 17th of April 1984, she was shot and killed during a protest outside the Libyan People Bureau, St James Square London SW1. Yvonne and I, both young budding PC’s, had been deployed to monitor the protest. As Yvonne anguished in the pain, I promised Yvonne I would find her killer. She died shortly after at Westminster Hospital.

Since that day, I have committed my life to pursuing justice for Yvonne. Despite decades of false leads and Libyan government intervention, I remain determined to honour that promise I made to her now over 33 years ago. To this point, I have relied on my personal savings and donations to fund my travel to Libya and legal counsel. With my personal resources having dwindled down, I am appealing to the public to support my pursuit of justice for Yvonne, a British hero and the love of my life.

Using your donation, I plan to hire a leading prosecuting barrister to enable a civil action. The funds would also enable further travel to Libya to meet with government officials. Lastly, should success be achieved, a conviction obtained, then and compensation will be donated to various police charities in the UK.

Thank you so much for your generosity.

The recent decision not to prosecute the suspect due to Natinal Security is an affront to British Justice, and will affect many Police Officers, past, present and future.

This decision must be challenged in the courts otherwise it is a very sad day for all those men and women in blue who police our street daily.

The Campaign continues, we have had a few setbacks but will not stop until a heroine receives the justice she deserves. Our opponents have limitless resources but however long it takes justice will prevail

The UK Government appears to be protecting a 'Cop Killer' under the guise of National Security. This cannot be allowed to happen and must be challenged in a court of law. The decision is perverse and a slap in the face to all UK Police Officers who also deserve justice and protection under the law.
