23 October, 2003


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Equality and Human Rights, Bairbre de Brún has said that Sinn Féin will meet Council of Europe experts who are on a visit to Belfast this week in relation to the Bill of Rights.

Ms de Brún said:

"Sinn Féin will meet with the Council of Europe experts this Friday in Belfast.

"We will obviously raise concerns with them about the approach the Human Rights Commission has taken on a range of equality issues and the implications for fair employment if international definitions around minority rights and protections are changed.

"We will also make our views clear that we believe the Commission is attempting to use the Council of Europe to advance its own particular agenda on these matters." ENDS
