Sinn Féin - On Your Side

De Brun response to Human Rights Commission Action Plan

15 October, 2003


Responding to the publication today of an 'Action Plan' by the Human Rights Commission Sinn Féin spokesperson on the issue Bairbre de Bron said:

" There is a crisis of confidence in the Human Rights Commission. It is broken and needs to be fixed. We received a copy of this Action Plan this morning and will study it in more detail before meeting with the Commission in the coming days.

" However this plan cannot address the core issues of structure, appointments, resources and remit. These are matters for the British government which we again raised with them in recent days. We will continue to raise these issues with the two governments in our ongoing discussions." ENDS
