We are publishing here an extract from a letter sent to the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) by Arthur Scargill, the President of the National Union of Minerworkers during the 1984-85 miners' strike, who outlines evidence that the police were preparing a conspiracy file for Scargill and that his arrest during the Battle of Orgreave was premeditated. This extrace has been forwarded to Socialist Appeal by the Justice for Mineworkers campaign.
