Neville Lawrence urges Dobson and Norris to name other attackers
Wednesday 04 January 2012
Stephen Lawrence's father Neville today called on the two men imprisoned for his son's murder to turn in the other people involved in the racist attack.
Mr Lawrence said the sentencing of Gary Dobson and David Norris was "only one step in a long, long journey" and called for the other killers to be brought to justice as well.
Addressing reporters outside the Old Bailey, he said: "One of my greatest hopes is that these people have now realised that they have been found out, and they are now going to go and lie down in their beds and think that they were the whole ones who were responsible for the death of my son.
"And they are going to give up the rest of the people so that I (can) come out here again in a year's time and talk to you people again."
Stephen's mother, Doreen, said it had been a "really difficult day" but added that she could now start moving on with her life.
She thanked the judge, accepting that he was unable to pass stiffer sentences on Dobson and Norris.
"The sentences that happened may be quite low, but at the same time the judge's hands were tied. And for that, as much as he can do, I am very grateful," Mrs Lawrence said outside court.
"It's the beginning of starting a new life because we've been in limbo for so long. So today we're going to start moving on, and it's time to take control of my life once more."
