Hooded Men high court decision welcomed

4 June, 2015 - by Raymond McCartney


Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has welcomed the decision to grant the group known as ‘The Hooded Men’ leave to seek a judicial review at the High Court.

 Mr McCartney said,

 “These men were tortured by the British State and have been denied justice as a full investigation into their case has never been held.

 “I welcome the decision today to allow them leave to seek a judicial review on the failure of the British Secretary of State, PSNI and Justice Department to hold a full inquiry.

 “It is time that these men had access to the truth as to why they were selected, who ordered their torture and why no one has been held to account.”
