Sinn Féin To Raise Cory Report With British

17 December, 2003


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Policing and Justice Gerry Kelly has said that the confirmation from Bertie Ahern yesterday that the British Government would not be publishing their sections of the Cory Report 'was yet another stalling tactic by the British to try and keep the lid on the collusion scandal'.

Mr Kelly said:

"Confirmation that the British government intend to delay the publication of the Cory Report is yet another stalling tactic by the British in their attempts to keep the lid on the collusion scandal.

"The facts are now well known and accepted that the British state was involved in the importation of weapons and the targeting and murder of citizens in the six counties. They have been attempting to hide the truth of collusion for decades.

"Sinn Féin will continue to support the families of those killed through collusion and we will raise the issue of the publication of the Cory Report with the British government in our discussions this afternoon."ENDS
