Sheehan welcomes Jordan inquest ruling

17 November, 2014 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has welcomed progress in the campaign for a fresh inquest into the shooting of west Belfast man Pearse Jordan. 

Speaking after a Court of Appeal judgement, the West Belfast MLA said; 

"I welcome the fact that the family of Pearse Jordan are another step closer to truth about what happened to Pearse in 1992. 

"The family have been engaged in a long struggle for truth and justice and have been frustrated by continuous obstacles put in place by the RUC and PSNI. 

"This latest development by the Court of Appeal is another step forward and paves the way for a fresh inquest into his death. 

"Sinn Fein will continue to support the family in their long campaign for truth and justice."
