Legacy inquest funds must be released immediately - McCann

3 November, 2016 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has said the British government must release funding for legacy inquests.

The Sinn Féin legacy spokesperson said:

"The British government have a responsibility to address the legacy of the past, including providing funding for legacy inquests.

"The fact that the families of people killed during the conflict have to bring this legal challenge is a sign of the British government's failure.

"All relatives are entitled to truth and justice and it is unacceptable that some have been waiting for more than 45 years at this stage.

"The British government need to release the funding for inquests immediately."
