McGurk's bar massacre case delays unacceptable - Kelly

6 November, 2015 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has said the delay involving the case of the bombing of McGurk’s bar, which has been adjourned for twelve weeks is totally unacceptable

Mr Kelly said,

"Not only was there a massive failure by the RUC to properly investigate the original bombing but the HET also failed miserably when re-examining the case.

"The families of the victims of McGurk Bar massacre went to court today to highlight the bias in the HET review of the RUC investigation into the killings and to have it quashed.

"The action by the barristers acting on behalf of the PSNI in getting the case delayed for another twelve weeks is unacceptable.

"These delays are a denial of justice and only add to the trauma of the families.”
