Compensation for victims and survivors HIA long overdue – Dillon

Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has said today’s decision to legislate to allow compensation payments to be made to victims and survivors of institutional abuse is long overdue.

The party’s victims and legacy spokesperson said:

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

‘They had their hopes dashed on so many occasions.

“So it is a win for them today that they are finally going to be able to get long-awaited redress for the terrible abuses they suffered at the hands of state and religious institutions.”
