Sinn Féin comment on Amnesty International report
Speaking today on the Amnesty International report Mitchel McLaughlin MLA said:
“Sinn Féin will take this report and study the proposals within it.
“However it remains the position of Sinn Féin that what we need to see as a mechanism to deal with the past is the establishment of an independent, international truth recovery body.
“The foundation of such a process cannot have the British government as so called arbiters – they were a party to the conflict and as such continue be involved in coverups while refusing to deal adequately with issues such as collusion and shoot to kill.
“Sinn Féin will be presenting these comments and our perspective on how to deal with the past at the Haass talks.”
