Ballymurphy Inquests

The relatives’ campaign has been dignified and tenacious

The Workers Party has welcomed the findings of the Coroner’s inquest into the deaths of ten people in Ballymurphy almost 50 years ago and says it hopes that the families and friends of those killed can take some comfort from the fact that the circumstances surroundingĀ their loved ones deaths have now been publicly, and officially, acknowledged despite the appallingly long wait to have their names cleared.

The relatives of those who died have conducted their campaign with dignity and tenacity and today they have received the recognition and the outcome that they deserve.

The killings in Ballymurphy in 1971, and many, many more atrocities over the decades which followed, further underlines the rights of families of those killed during the ‘Troubles’ to  full judicial scrutiny of all legacy murders and other serious crimes committed during the ‘Troubles’
