Dillon calls on British government to implement Stormont House legacy mechanisms

16 January, 2019 - by Linda Dillon

Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon once again called on the British government to implement the Stormont House legacy mechanisms.

The party’s victims and legacy spokesperson was speaking after reports that a former British army soldier is to be prosecuted for murder of Aidan McAnespie in 1988.

Linda Dillon said:

"While, I welcome today's news, it is beyond time the British government implemented the legacy mechanisms agreed at Stormont House in a human rights compliant manner.

“If we are serious about dealing with legacy then we must ensure that families no longer have to pursue due process in this long drawn out manner.

“The McAnespie family have highlighted the toll the campaign for justice has taken on them.

“It is a disgrace that families are still waiting on truth and justice.

“Sinn Féin will continue to stand with all families in their pursuit of truth and justice for their loved ones.”
