Sinn Féin to lodge Petition of Concern on DUP Victims Motion

9 December, 2010 - by Ian Milne


Sinn Féin Victims Spokesperson, Francie Molloy MLA (Mid-Ulster) has stated that the Party intends to lodge a Petition of Concern about the proposed DUP Motion attempting to change the definition of a victim.

Mr. O’Dowd said:

“Sinn Féin intends to lodge a Petition of Concern against a proposed Motion to be debated in the Assembly on Monday 13th December that would have the effect of changing the definition of a victim.

“We believe that this attempt to run roughshod over the rights of some victims is nothing short of an insult, not just to the victims but especially to their survivors who cherish their memories.

“Sinn Féin will not stand by and allow the DUP or anyone else to be selective about or redefine who was a victim of the conflict from which we have emerged.
