Support for Family of Pearse Jordan
Commenting on the decision of the High Court in Belfast to dismiss a case taken by the family of Pearse Jordan against the DPP for failing to provide reasons why they failed to prosecute the RUC killer of their son, West Belfast Sinn Féin representative Bairbre de Brún said:
" The battle by the family of Pearse Jordan for justice has been a long one. They have been continually frustrated first by the RUC and now by the PSNI.
" This latest court battle was an attempt by the Jordan family to seek answers from the DPP around why they failed to prosecute the RUC killer of their son.
" Pearse Jordan was an unarmed man shot in the back by the RUC. That is a indisputable fact.
" Sinn Féin will continue to support the Jordan family and those other families whose loved ones were killed by the British State or their surrogates in their battle for truth and justice." ENDS
