Fullerton family still seeking truth on councillor’s assassination – McElduff

25 May, 2017 - by Barry McElduff


Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff said questions into the murder of Sinn Féin councillor Eddie Fullerton would not go away.

The West Tyrone election candidate was speaking on the anniversary of the poplular Buncranna councillor’s killing. Eddie Fullerton was assassinated by a UDA gang in collusion with British state forces on 25th May 1991.

Barry McElduff said:

“The Fullerton family has long called for an independent public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Eddie’s death. They are still waiting for a satisfactory conclusion.

“Since Eddie Fullerton’s death, there have been serious questions raised about collusion between British military and intelligence agencies with the UDA gang involved in the cross-border attack, the role of the Garda beforehand and the flawed investigation that followed.

“Eddie was a highly-respected and popular figure throughout Donegal and the family deserve the truth about who was behind his assassination and also about the failed and inadequate investigation which followed.”
