Sinn Féin to meet Justice Minister on Nelson Report

25 May, 2011 - by John O'Dowd


Sinn Féin Assembly member for Upper Bann John O’Dowd is to meet with the Justice Minister David Ford to discuss the findings of the Rosemary Nelson Inquiry. In particular Mr O’Dowd wishes to raise the current status of civil servants and police officers directly criticised by the report.
Mr O’Dowd said:
“The Inquiry into the murder of Rosemary Nelson identified a number of senior NIO Civil Servants and senior RUC officers who clearly contributed either through omission or action to Rosemary’s brutal murder.
“The public need to hear answers from the Justice Minister about where these individuals are now.
“I will be seeking reassurance from the Minister David Ford firstly that the very significant failings indentified by the Rosemary Nelson Inquiry will never be repeated and secondly that those responsible are no longer in a position to repeat the disgraceful conduct outlined in the report.”
