11 November, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin President and west Belfast MP Gerry Adams this morning accompanied the family of Harry Holland at a meeting with the British Attorney General.

Speaking after the meeting in Belfast Mr Adams said;

“It was and is our view that the PPS did not handle the Harry Holland case properly.

There is huge public concern about this.

The Holland family made a compelling case to the British Attorney General about the inadequate way the PPS dealt with this case and in particular the way in which the charges against two of those involved were reduced.

The British Attorney General and PPS agreed to reflect on the points put to them by the family and to come back to them.

They also accepted the need for greater transparency within the judicial system and in particular how it engages with victims and their families.

We intend to follow up on this.” CRÍOCH
