Kelly voices support for families demand for publication of Cory Report

4 December, 2003


Sinn Féin spokesperson Gerry Kelly has said that his party fully supports the stance of the families who have demanded that the British government keep their word and publish the Cory Report.

Mr Kelly said:

"The British government announced that it would be publishing the Cory Report on December 1st. That deadline has come and gone yet the families of those killed and being investigated have not yet been informed what exactly is happening.

"Sinn Féin have consistently supported these families in their search for the truth. We support their demand for independent judicial inquiries into the deaths of their loved ones. We will continue to do this in the time ahead.

"The Party President Gerry Adams raised this matter with the US Ambassador Richard Haas yesterday and he will be raising this matter with the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in Dublin this afternoon." ENDS
