O’Dowd welcomes Hamill Inquiry Ruling

1 July, 2008 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has welcomed the decision in the High Court calling on British Secretary of Sate Shaun Woodward to once again re-examine the remit of the Robert Hamill Inquiry.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"The Hamill family in their bid to establish the truth about the murder of Robert have had obstacle after obstacle placed in their way by the British Government. The British policy of concealment and cover-up has been in full swing.

"It is now time for the British Sectary of State to allow a fully Independent Inquiry to take place and to stop dragging the Hamill family through the court system." ENDS
