Dillon meets with HIA victims and survivors
Sinn Féin victim’s spokesperson Linda Dillon met with survivors and victims of institutional abuse at Stormont today.
The Mid-Ulster MLA said:
“Today I met with the survivors and victims of institutional abuse to reaffirm our support for them.
“Sinn Féin has always fully supported the victims and survivors of historic abuse.
“We support a redress scheme, and it is our view that all those with responsibility for the state-run and religious homes where this abuse occurred need to accept their role in that.
“Sinn Féin has also called for urgent consideration to be given to making interim payments to the victims who have waited long enough.
“What is required is the full implementation of all the recommendations of the panel as soon as possible in order to address the needs of victims and survivors."
