Dillon welcomes appeal court ruling on HIA redress

Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has welcomed an Appeal Court ruling that the Stormont Executive Office has the power to compensate survivors of historical institutional abuse.

The party’s victims and legacy spokesperson said:

“This is a win for the victims and survivors of historical institutional abuse.

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

“The British secretary of state needs to ensure the issue of historical institutional abuse be progressed without delay and the legislation goes through before the Westminster parliament dissolves.”
