Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Murphy - Cory Recommendations should be published immediately

7 October, 2003


Sinn Féin spokesperson on the issue of Collusion Conor Murphy has called on the British government to publish without delay the recommendations of Judge Cory.

Mr. Murphy said:

"We are told by British government sources that the Cory Report has to be vetted by the securocrats before it will be considered for publication. Even if you accept this argument, which we do not, there should be no excuse for failing to publish the recommendations of Judge Cory immediately.

"The Cory Report itself should not even have been necessary. The British government should have moved two years ago after the Weston Park discussions to establish independent international inquiries into these matters.

"Sinn Féin have consistently supported the demands of individual families who believe that their loved ones were killed as a result of British state manipulation, control and direction of unionist paramilitary gangs. We will continue to do this until they are satisfied that the truth has been established." ENDS
