McCartney backs calls for enquiry into the murder of Eamonn “Bronco” Bradley

25 August, 2007

Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney, speaking after a vigil to mark the 25th Anniversary of the murder of Eamonn "Bronco" Bradley, has backed the Bradley family calls for an enquiry into his murder.

Eamonn 'Bronco' Bradley was shot dead by The British Army's Royal Anglican regiment on the 25th August 1982, aged 23.

Mr McCartney said:

"I fully support the Bradley family in their search for the truth into the circumstances surrounding the murder of Bronco, which took place twenty-five years ago this weekend.

"Saturday's vigil was a very poignant occasion and it was heartening to see so many people in attendance to honour his memory and show support for the Bradley family in their search for the truth.

"Just two weeks ago thousands of people from across Ireland attended a rally in Belfast .The objective of that march and rally was to draw attention to collusion and British state violence; a policy which resulted in many thousands of victims who were killed or injured or bereaved; and the administrative and institutional cover-up by the British government and its state agencies."
