THE father of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence warned yesterday that he may not co-operate with an inquiry into police spies unless the probe is transparent.
Asked if he would consider boycotting the investigation into undercover policing if it is too secretive, Neville Lawrence told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Yes, because we need to get to the truth and to the bottom of what these people were doing.
“You can’t get to the truth unless it is open to the public to hear exactly what they did. That is why we have an inquiry to make sure that they come out into public and divulge exactly what they have been doing, and what they still may be doing.”
Undercover officers gathered information on his family and on justice campaigners linked to people who had died at the hands of police, such as Jean Charles de Menezes.
