Finucane calls on Irish government to take interstate case against shameful Legacy Act 

Sinn Féin MP John Finucane has called on the Irish government to take an interstate case against the British government over their cynical and callous Legacy Act. 

John Finucane said: 

“The British government’s Legacy Act is a cynical and callous attempt to block victims and families from ever getting justice through the courts and to hide the role of British state forces and their agencies in the conflict. 

“It is already pulling the shutters down on justice with families being informed that their loved one’s case will not be investigated as a direct result of this shameful Act.

“The Irish government can remove the burden of legal action from individual families by taking an interstate case against the British government themselves. This would show them standing up for all those impacted by this cruel legislation and, importantly, would fast track the process.”
