Sinn Féin meet with Birmingham families

4 July, 2018 - by Michelle O'Neill


Following today's meeting with relatives of families killed or injured in the 1974 Birmingham bombings Sinn Féin Vice President Michelle O'Neill said:

"We welcome today’s opportunity to engage with the Birmingham families and we listened closely to their concerns.

"Sinn Féin extended our sympathy to the families of those killed and injured in the Birmingham bomb.

“Sinn Féin  said that all victims need to be treated with equality and dignity and respect.

"We have consistently supported all families in campaigns for inquests which are compliant with Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights. We will also support the Birmingham families in this regard.

“We uphold the right of all families to seek deserve maximum disclosure about how their loved ones died.

“The best way of achieving that is through the implementation of the Legacy mechanisms agreed at Stormont House. 

"We welcome the fact that the Legacy Bill is now out for consultation and the process is finally moving forward.”
