A MOTHER still fighting for justice, after her son was killed in the Hillsborough disaster, had her case rejected by a European court.
Anne Williams, who lost 15-year-old son Kevin in Sheffield in 1989, has campaigned for a fresh inquest to be held into his death.
But yesterday, it emerged her bid was thrown out by the European Court of Human Rights.
Her case was ruled inadmissible by the court, which stated the time period for her challenge has now long expired.
The 68-year-old was told her application should have been lodged within six months of Lord Justice Stuart Smith’s scrutiny in 1997.
In 2006, Ms Williams, of Chester, submitted a bid to the Attorney General for a new inquest into Kevin’s death.
When that was refused, she turned to Europe, but she was informed her referral three years ago was not an official legal hearing.
Now, the 68-year-old has vowed to again bring the case back to the Attorney General and call for a fresh inquest to be opened.
She said: “I am used to the setbacks now. Interestingly, they have not refused me because I am not right, it was because of timing.
“A while ago, I was going to stop fighting, but now I have decided to carry on.”
