Woodward response to Hamill concerns ‘a mistake’

20 March, 2008


Sinn Féin Upper Bann MLA John O'Dowd has said that Shuan Woodward's decision not to allow the Hamill inquiry to look at the actions of the Director of Public Prosecutions is a mistake.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"Shuan Woodward's decision not to allow the Hamill Inquiry to look at the role of the Director of Public Prosecutions will only confirm suspicions that the British government is not interested the search for truth and justice.

"The decision is a mistake and will further undermine public confidence in the ability of the inquiry to get to the truth of what happened on the night Robert was murdered, the subsequent activities of the police and the decisions of the DPP." ENDS
