McCord gets positive reception from MEPs and Commission

25 April, 2007

On the second day of his two day trip of the European Parliament Raymond McCord has received a warm and encouraging reception from MEPs and Commission Staff.

Speaking today Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brun said:

"This trip has been clearly worthwhile both in terms of Raymond McCord briefing MEPs and Commission staff and in terms of building links to strengthen his campaign for justice.

"Sinn Féin is committed to raising the issue of collusion at the heart of the EU and doing what we can to ensure all those affected secure their right to truth and justice."ENDS

Note to editor:

Mr McCord has met with MEPs from across the range of political groups in the European parliament, including MEPs from the North. A number of Irish MEPs have met with him, attended briefings and shared the platform at the press conference. He also met with senior advisors to the Commission president and to the Irish government.
