26 May, 2010 - by Westminster

Sinn Féin deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has today welcomed the news that the Saville Report into the murder of 14 civilians in Derry on Bloody Sunday is to be published on 15th June.

Mr McGuinness said:

“The families of those murdered on Bloody Sunday have fought a long and difficult campaign for the truth about the events in Derry 38 years ago. I welcome the fact that the British government have now announced that the Saville Report will be given to the families and published on June 15th.

“The lies of Widgery need to be exposed and buried and the truth of what happened when the British parachute regiment came to Derry and murdered 14 people on our street needs to be told.” ENDS
