    Hillsborough: Sir Norman Bettison resigns

    Hillsborough: Sir Norman Bettison resigns as victims call for pension freeze
    Sir Norman Bettison will not face any internal police misconduct charges relating to the Hillsborough disaster following his resignation, and will retire with an annual pension of 83,000, it has emerged.


    By Hannah Furness1:57PM BST 24 Oct 2012
    Sir Norman officially tendered his resignation today, ahead of a meeting to consider his role in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.
    His resignation is expected to enable him to take his full pension entitlement for his time as an officer, previously calculated at 83,000 a year.
    He will not now be able to face misconduct charges, but will still be investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
    A spokesman for the IPCC said: "Retirement or resignation does not prevent criminal prosecution should the investigation identify criminal offences, including misconduct in a public office."
    The chief constable, who investigated the tragedy for South Yorkshire Police, has been under growing pressure since the Hillsborough Independent Panel report was published.

    I suppose he thinks by jumping off now he will begin to draw his 83kinjoke pension , the as he has started it they will not be able to take it away , even if he is found guilty.

    And of course being one of the funny handshake clan it will all be swept under the carpet , with anyone in authority being shifted swiftly sideways if they start asking any awquard questions or pointing out a few home truths .

    No doubt one of his shady buddies , devious Dave will be ducking and diving at PM's question time next week

    His pension is safe as he has paid a considearable amount of his salary into the fund during his career.

    His Sirship, however, will be at risk if the outcome of any investigation proves that he was involved in a cover-up which seems likely, unless of course that investigation is part of another cover-up, and another and another
