Sinn Féin - On Your Side

No one should be above the law - Dillon

14 April, 2017 - by Linda Dillon


Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has said no one can be above the law in relation to killings from the past.

Speaking after a protest today by former British soldiers outside Belfast City Hall, Linda Dillon said:

"There can be no amnesty, no one can be above the law regardless of how long ago the incident took place.

"During the conflict British soldiers operated with impunity, now they want their government to legalise this practice and provide an amnesty.

"Only a handful of British soldiers have ever been convicted or served any time for killing Irish citizens.

"This further underscores the need to address the outstanding issues around dealing with the legacy of the past.

"Sinn Féin will continue to support the families of victims as they campaign for truth and justice."
