Doherty challenges Blair on Acts of Completion

18 January, 2004

Sinn Féin Vice President Pat Doherty MP has launched a stinging attack on the record of the British Prime Minister Tony Blair and he challenged him over his record of acts of completion.

Mr. Doherty said:

"Mr. Blair has again raised the issue of 'Acts of Completion' by Republicans. He made no mention of unionist paramilitaries, at a time when they are creating havoc on the streets of Belfast and threatening more violence if they do not get their way in Maghaberry.

"There was no mention from Mr. Blair of the promised demilitarisation by British Crown Forces in Ireland.

"But perhaps more significant was no mention or sign that the Cory Report into the killings of citizens by the various British Agencies is to be published or acted upon.

"What about your acts of completion Mr. Blair?"ENDS
