SF challenge NIO over court challenge

12 August, 2013

Commenting on efforts this morning in the High Court in Belfast by the NIO and the PSNI to prevent the DCAL Minister Caral NíChuilan disclosing files to the legal representatives of those killed through British State violence and collusion, Sinn Féin MP Conor Murphy said:

“Sinn Féin is concerned at any efforts by the NIO to interfere with the responsibilities of a devolved Minister in serving the rights of local citizens.

“The irony is that these are public records about public inquest and court hearings, which have already been heard and reported in public.  Yet the NIO now wants to prevent access to them. 

“Sinn Féin will continue to support relatives and survivors in their quest for full disclosure and truth from the State." ends
