British must fund collusion investigations - Hazzard

14 June, 2015 - by Chris Hazzard

Sinn Fein MLA Chris Hazzard has said the British government must accept its responsibility to fund investigations into collusion. 

Mr Hazzard said: 

"The British government has continually sought ways to attempt to cover up and ignore the role of its state forces and agents in collusion.

"It has often claimed it cannot afford to adequately resource investigations into collusion but it cannot hide behind such an excuse. 

"We now have the bizarre spectacle of David Cameron supporting plans for a £15million museum to Margaret Thatcher. 

"This money would be better spent addressing Thatcher's caustic legacy of collusion, when her state forces and agents, together with the loyalist death squads they directed and ran, were responsible for hundreds of killings. 

"The families of victims of collusion and those campaigning for the truth about Kincora are entitled to justice. 

"The British government has a responsibility to fund these investigations and must stop using money as an excuse to continually deny justice to so many."
