Jury in Stardust inquests continues to consider verdicts

The jury at the Stardust inquests is continuing to consider its verdicts on what is now their seventh day of deliberations.

Earlier, coroner, Dr Myra Cullinane, told the jurors that they were answering factual questions and are not permitted in law to attach failure or to any person identified or identifiable.

She made her comments in response to a query from the jury who asked if, when answering yes/no questions on their questionnaire, if a ‘yes’ implied a failure/breach/wrongdoing.

The coroner replied that they were not implying failure of wrongdoing if they answered ‘yes’.

The jury also asked about the standards in place at the time in 1981.

The 12 person jury, made up of seven women and five men, began their deliberations last Wednesday and have been considering their verdicts now for around 24 hours in total.

These fresh inquests began last April and have heard testimony from over 300 witnesses.
