Sheehan welcomes Hooded Men decision

18 March, 2016 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has welcomed a High Court decision ordering Theresa Villiers to give sworn testimony on the case of the 'Hooded Men.' 

Mr Sheehan said; 

"These 14 men were tortured by the British state and have been denied justice ever since due to the fact that a full investigation has not been held into their case.

"I welcome today's decision ordering Theresa Villiers to give sworn testimony on the case. 

"These men and their families deserve answers as to why they were singled out, who ordered their torture and why no one has ever been held responsible."
