Short report of meeting with ACC Corrigan

Published on Friday 25th November, 2011 by Celtic Trust

Fans put concerns to Strathclyde Police

The Celtic Trust, together with representatives of the CSA, the ARCSC and the AICSC met with the Assistant Chief Constable and another officer yesterday to discuss a number of issues affecting Celtic fans.  Primarily we wished to raise concerns about the policing of the Hibs game on 29th October which appeared to depart from normal procedures; we wished to discuss the refusal of the Match Commander to discuss this with us after the event (as would be normal) and the circumstances surrounding a number of recent arrests of Celtic fans which also appeared to depart from normal procedures.

We conveyed in detail our concerns about these issues and Mr Corrigan responded in a full and frank manner to most of our concerns and promised to provide a further written response to some of the issues he was not able to address on the day.

Mr Corrigan conveyed his wish that there be a better relationship between the police and the supporters' organisations and his strong desire that young people, who would not normally come into contact with the criminal justice system, should not do so in the context of a game of football.

 A fuller report will appear on this and other sites over the next few days.
