London, Sept 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The English Prime Minister, David Cameroon will on Wednesday apologize to the families of football spectators that died 23 years ago.

He will also show his regret on how the government of Margaret Thatcher and the police handled the Hillsborough issue. The statement that will be as an answer to the independent report on the 1989 disaster that killed 96 people will be made to the commons.

A commission that was lead by Liverpool’s Bishop has been looking at the official documents that will be given to the victims families for the last two years. The prime minister is also supposed to apologize for the time that they have taken to give out the report. The crusaders say that there was some trial to put the blame on the football spectators and to hide the failure of the police.

At the beginning of this year, some documents that were sneaked some days after the disaster claimed that the officials were accused the spectators for the crush. The officials also blamed the people that were responsible for controlling the crowd during the semi final match between Liverpool and Nottingham.

The sneaked document said that the fatal crush was caused by the opening of the exit gate. The report that will be released will make a certain police station to be accountable for the disaster and not the Liverpool spectators. Another source said that the prime minister is still not decided whether to issue the apology publicly or not since he has not seen the report.
