British government must provide information and resources to conflict inquests - Kelly

18 January, 2016 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has said the British government must provide information and resources to inquests involving deaths from the conflict. 

Mr Kelly said; 

"There is an onus on the British government to provide resources for the coronial process and to disclose information on deaths from the conflict. 

“To date the British government seems more interested in hiding the truth than providing answers to the families of victims.

"Sinn Féin will oppose any attempt to replace or undermine the inquest process. 

“Recent comments by the PSNI that it would take decades to work through legacy cases are unacceptable as many families have already waited decades for an inquest.

"The British government, the judiciary and the PSNI have a statutory duty to come forward with proposals and solutions to meet the needs of the families of victims.”
