Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey said that 20 years after the murder of Theresa Clinton, her family are entitled to know the truth about British state collusion in her killing.
The South Belfast MLA’s comments come as Theresa Clinton’s family lodged writs against the British government and the PSNI.
Alex Maskey said:
“For 20 years now Theresa Clinton’s family has been denied the truth surrounding her killing.
“Collusion was a system of repression and terror employed by the British state in an attempt to break the will of the nationalist community.
“Clearly it went further than the loyalist gun gangs involved and their handlers.
“Theresa Clinton’s family is entitled to know the truth about her murder. The British state should come clean rather than put her family through the ordeal of going to the courts.”
Below are two events to mark the 20th Anniversary of the murder of Theresa Clinton:
Monday 14th April 7:30pm at Theresa & Jim’s former home at 16 Balfour Avenue. Speaker: Councillor Deirdre Hargey. Organised by the Nolan/Downey Sinn Féin Cumann. Please assemble at 7:15pm
