Loughgall RUC claims sickening - Molloy

12 May, 2018 - by Francie Molloy

Sinn Féin MP Francie Molloy has said claims that RUC members held parties in the van used in the Loughgall massacre are sickening and will add to the grief of the families. 

The Mid Ulster MP said:

“Our first thoughts are with the friends and families of the nine men killed at Loughgall in May 1987.

“Claims that members of the RUC disrespected their memory in such a callous, calculated and deliberate way are sickening and will only add to the hurt and grief of the families. 

“The actions of these RUC members stand in stark contrast to the actions of the Loughgall families who have been campaigning in a dignified and respectful manner for inquests into the deaths of their loved ones in order to access the truth of what happened on that awful day. 

“Sinn Féin supports the right of the Loughgall families, and the families of all those bereaved by the conflict, to an inquest and we will continue to do so.”
