Milne backs coroner on HET report into Sean Brown murder - Milne
And the South Derry MLA called on the PSNI to end its stalling tactics, which have caused endless delays to the inquest and which was causing unnecessary hurt to the family
Mr Milne said,
“I welcome the comments from the coroner John Leckey that he is prepared to go to the High Court to force the PSNI to hand over a report by the HET into the killing of GAA official Sean Brown.
“The full inquest into the murder of Sean Brown is due to begin in January 2015 almost 18 years on from his killing.
“It is important that there are no further delays.
Local Councillor Caoimhe O’Neill added,
“The family of Sean Brown have a right to the truth and this inquest has been constantly delayed due to the constant obstacles being brought forward by the PSNI and this has to stop.
“This obstruction to the inquests is piling undue distress on to the family.
“The PSNI need to live up to their responsibilities and produce this report immediately.”
