Justice for the Farepak victims! Please sign the FVC petition!
It's five years since the collapse of Farepak.
The Guardian reports:
The Farepak Victims Committee (FVC) will mark the fifth anniversary by launching an online petition to demand the remaining £36.9m is repaid and those responsible are held to account. The group needs 100,000 signatures to prompt a discussion in the House of Commons.
Louise McDaid, chair of the FVC, said: "Surely we deserve some answers as to why, five years on, we have still not received justice."
There's another good report on the campaign over at the BBC website.
"The government have a responsibility to ensure that people's money is protected", she (Louise McDaid) told BBC radio's Good Morning Scotland programme.
"If they can protect the banks, then they can protect ordinary working people."
The FVC petition says:
The Farepak Victims Committee call on the Government to: 1. Bring those responsible to account; 2. Fully compensate Farepak Victims; 3. Put in place financial regulations that ensure that this never happens again.
You can sign the FVC petition here. Please try and spare a minute or so to support this very worthy cause. And tell your friends about it too. Many thanks!
