Murderer of a two year old, taking legal action against News International for compensation being resisted by the mother of the victim

February 22nd, 2012

After the news, that Robert Thompson, 29, could sue News International for tens and thousands as compensation for having his voice mails targeted, the mother of James Bulger the toddler who was killed by

Thomson has instructed her solicitors to find out any which way the pay out could be stopped.

The Lawyers acting for Robert Thompson, 29, had informed Scotland Yard that they were planning to take legal action against News International.
After the team from Operation Weeting had informed Thomson about his voice mail been targeted between 2002 and 2007, the lawyers for Thomson started the action.

Mrs Fergus the mother of the two year old called on Theresa May, the Home Secretary, and the Press Complaints Commission to intervene. She said that it was a terrible insult to the memories of James if any payout was made to the animal who murdered him.

She said, she could not believe that lawyers failed to see of what they were doing.

She added that it was blood money for a killer who had robbed a child of his life and that he should not benefit out of the wicked crime. It was like rewarding the evil she said.

Having been on the suffering end since her son was murdered, down from the government to the courts, the lawyers and other agencies who she said were on the side of the killers, she was not taking it any more and she would not sit lying back and watch it happen she added.

Her husband Stuart Fergus said that he was shocked when he was told by the Operation Weeting team that the killer was claiming compensation for phone hacking.

There was no provision to oppose the move and the team also could not offer any suggestion he said.
It is thought that Thompson’s lawyers are arguing that he should receive more than £50,000, as revealing his identity to the public would have put his life at risk.

Thompson and Jon Venables were convicted of murdering two-year-old James Bulger in Liverpool in February 1993 when they were both aged 10. they were released in 2010 and given new names to protect their identity.
