Sinn Féin - On Your Side

IMC Report Due Tomorrow

23 May, 2005


Speaking in advance of the latest IMC Report due for publication tomorrow Sinn Féin MP for Newry & Armagh Conor Murphy said:

Mr Murphy said:

"The Independent Monitoring Commission was established in breach of the Good Friday Agreement. It operates outside the Agreement and contrary to natural justice and the European Convention on Human Rights and it can have no role in the political process.

"Sinn Féin predicted that the IMC would be little more than a tool for the securocrats to try and damage our party and the wider political process. Each report to date has have been used by the British Government to discriminate against Sinn Féin in an attempt to interfere with the democratic process. I would expect that tomorrows effort will see more of the same." ENDS
