Ballymurphy families entitled to truth and justice - McCorley

9 November, 2015 - by Rosie McCorley


Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley has said the families of those killed in the Ballymurphy massacre are entitled to truth and justice. 

The West Belfast MLA said; 

"The families of those killed in the Ballymurphy massacre are entitled to maximum disclosure about what happened to their loved ones in 1971. 

"The British government are continuing to protect those responsible by refusing to hold a full inquiry into what happened. 

"The mechanisms on dealing with the past agreed at Stormont House, which include maximum disclosure, must be implemented. 

"The families want to see an independent panel appointed to review all of the documentation and files held by the British government. 

"I welcome the fact that the Alliance Party co-sponsored today's motion but it is disappointing that the unionist parties are continuing to oppose the long search for the truth of the Ballymurphy families.

"Sinn Féin will continue to support the families of the eleven people who were killed in Ballymurphy in their campaign for maximum disclosure."
