Sinn Féin - On Your Side

All information must now be brought before Pearse Jordan Inquest

24 February, 2011


Sinn Féin MLA for west Belfast Pat Sheehan has welcomed a provisional date for an inquest into the murder of unarmed IRA Volunteer Pearse Jordan which will likely be set for October this year.

Speaking today Mr Sheehan said;

“I want to pay tribute to Pearse’s parents, Hugh and Teresa; their campaign for truth and justice on behalf of their son has been a source of great admiration amongst our community. They continue to have our full respect and support.

It is now vital that all evidence sought by the coroner and the Jordan Family is brought before this inquest and that the facts surrounding Pearse’s murder are finally investigated properly and fully.

Sinn Féin has, through the west Belfast DPP and the Policing Board, consistently challenged the PSNI for its role in delaying this inquest. The PSNI’s full cooperation and full disclosure in terms compliant with Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights must be at the centre of this inquest and it is vital that no further stalling tactics or cynical delays be put in the way of the truth and justice process.” CRÍOCH
