British government must not stand in the way of the Nelson Inquiry

14 April, 2008


Sinn Féin Upper Bann MLA John O'Dowd has said that the British government should not stand in the way or delay the search for truth in the murder of Human Rights Lawyer Rosemary Nelson. The Public Inquiry starts tomorrow.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"Sinn Féin fully supports the demands of the families for the truth and justice.

"The British government should not stand in the way or delay the search for truth about what happened in the murder of Human Rights Lawyer Rosemary Nelson.

"We have already seen in other cases, such as the Inquiry into the murder of Robert Hamill, that families have raised very serious concerns about the frustration of justice by the British government." ENDS
