Clarity needed to ensure HIA victims receive redress – Dillon

Sinn Féin victims and legacy spokesperson Linda Dillon today met with the Interim Advocate for Victims and Survivors of Historical Institutional Abuse.

Linda Dillon said:

“I met with Brendan McAllister today to discuss the next steps regarding redress for victims and survivors of Historical Institutional Abuse.

“I welcome the fact that a proposed Bill setting up a redress board to compensate HIA victims is to be brought forward. However, victims need some reassurance about what will happen if an election is called.

“The victims have waited too long for justice or redress for an awful wrongdoing. 

“What is needed is clarification on this to ensure victims receive the redress they are long entitled to.”
