SinnFeinPress - Welcome for go-ahead for Cloyne Report

8 April, 2011 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Children, Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin, has welcomed the High Court decision to permit publication of most of the report on sexual abuse by clerics in the Catholic diocese of Cloyne.

He said:

“Now that the way has been cleared by the High Court, the publication of the Cloyne Report should proceed as quickly as possible. Justice Minister Alan Shatter and Children's Minister Frances Fitzgerald should ensure that early publication occurs in a manner sensitive to the needs and wishes of victims. It is equally important that criminal proceedings are thorough in order to ensure justice and truth for victims.” ENDS
