26 October, 2017 - by Francie Molloy

Sinn Féin’s Francie Molloy MP has said Sinn Féin will continue to fight for the rights of victims' of the conflict, following a sitting of the Good Friday Agreement Oireachtas Committee in Dublin today at which several victims' groups were in attendance.

The Mid Ulster MP said:

“Today Sinn Féin MPs met with representatives from WAVE Trauma Centre and the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ), at the Good Friday Agreement Implementation Committee in the Irish parliament.

“Victims’ concerns cannot continue to be neglected. The legacy mechanisms of the Stormont House Agreement should be put in place immediately and adequately resourced. 

"Crucially, the British government must drop its veto on the release of information to families, release funding for legacy inquests as requested by the Lord Chief Justice, and the Office of the Police Ombudsman must be provided with the resources to complete outstanding legacy investigations."
