23 October, 2018 - by Linda Dillon


Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has said there can be no attempt to introduce an amnesty for British forces who killed Irish citizens.

The Sinn Féin Victims Spokesperson was commenting after a 150 Tory MPs wrote a letter to Theresa May calling on her to drop plans to investigate past crimes in the north and other military conflicts.Linda Dillon said:“Any attempt to introduce an amnesty for British forces who killed Irish citizens would undermine the proposed new legacy mechanisms agreed at Stormont House.“No one is above the law, all victims and survivors should have the same access to processes of truth and justice, there can be no immunity or impunity for British forces guilty of crime, collusion and murder in Ireland.“The mechanisms agreed at Stormont House must be implemented and the subsequent legislation must deliver if it is to meet the needs of families and deliver on the promise of the Stormont House Agreement.

“Sinn Féin will continue to support the families in their pursuit of truth and justice.”
