Sinn Féin to support Loughinisland vigil
South Down MP Chris Hazzard has said Sinn Féin will support the Loughinisland families at a vigil tonight.
Chris Hazzard said:
“Tonight Sinn Féin will join with the Loughinisland families at a vigil outside O’Tooles Bar at 7pm in Loughinisland following the arrest of two journalists who worked on to the ‘No Stone Unturned’ documentary.
“The relatives of the victims are appalled at the arrest of these two journalists, after 20 years of state cover-up and collusion in the loyalist murders of six men in The Heights Bar.
“Freedom of the press is a fundamental element of a democratic society.
“The ‘No Stone Unturned’ documentary, exposed the extent of state collusion between the state and loyalist paramilitaries.
“The Loughinisland families have campaigned for many years against state collusion and for truth and justice for their loved ones.
“Sinn Féin will continue to support them in their quest for justice.”
