McCartney family deserve justice

16 February, 2005


Sinn Féin policing and justice spokesperson, North Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly has made it clear that Sinn Féin supports the McCartney family in their quest for truth and justice.

Mr Kelly said:

"I want to make it absolutely clear that Sinn Féin supports the McCartney family in their quest for truth and justice.

"I have spoken with the family on a number of occasions. Our commitment is to helping the them achieve the justice they seek and I want to make it clear that no one has any right to prevent anyone from helping the McCartney family.

"Others are wishing to turn this into a political football about Sinn Fein‚s position on policing. This will not assist the McCartney family. The family know our position on policing.

"Our position is clear - People with reservations about assisting the PSNI should give any information they might have either to the family, a solicitor or any other authoritative or reputable person or body." ENDS
