Will criminal charges ever be brought in Grenfell Tower case? | The Stream

Testimony regarding London’s deadly 2017 Grenfell Tower fire restarted Monday, but this time without survivors and bereaved families in the courtroom, due to coronavirus restrictions. Before the inquiry’s 17-week break, questioning centered on those involved in the public housing high-rise’s refurbishment and installation of flammable cladding, which contributed to the deaths of 72 people. Britain’s attorney general said testimony from corporate witnesses who knew about cost-cutting measures and fire safety risks would not have their oral evidence used against them in a criminal trial. How will the move affect prospects for criminal charges to be made in the future? In this episode of The Stream, we’ll look at Grenfell three years on and ask what justice could look like.
