Legacy proposals unacceptable

More than three thousand people were murdered in Northern Ireland during the ‘Troubles’

The Workers Party has criticised recent reports that the Westminster government is considering a ban on future prosecutions relating to the ‘Troubles’.

“Attempts to bypass and forgo full judicial scrutiny of legacy murders and other serious crimes of the Troubles are designed to cover up and excuse the excesses of state and terrorist actions”, the Party said,

” Such proposals totally disregard the needs of victims, survivors and their families. Whatever process is finally adopted it cannot and must not provide an escape route for murder irrespective of those responsible.”

  1. It’s about time that the truth should come out. No more whitewashes by the state. If it’s ever going to be resolved the cover up need to stop. The HET and other inquires were a farce. The families will not forget or give up.
