27 October, 2015 - by Paul Maskey

Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has described the discovery of a bullet in the body of Joseph Murphy, one of those killed in the Ballymurphy Massacre of August 1971, as a significant step forward in the families' campaign for justice. 

Mr Maskey said; 

"Joseph Murphy’s body was exhumed in the search for justice and it looks like a bullet has been found. 

"This is a significant step forward in the quest for justice for the Murphy and the other families of this massacre. 

"The families have been campaigning for many years and hopefully the British Government now do the honourable thing and grant them their inquiry.

"This is a very emotional time for the family but they have been very determined in their pursuit of truth and justice."
