Irish government must take interstate case against ‘cynical & cruel’ Legacy Act – Finucane

Sinn Féin MP John Finucane has said the Irish government must take an interstate case against the British government’s shameful Legacy Act.

Speaking as families today launch legal action against the Act, the North Belfast MP said:

“I support the families taking to the courts today to challenge the British government’s cynical and cruel Legacy Act.

“Many of those families have been waiting decades for the truth of what happened to their loved one.

“These families should not have been forced to take individual legal action. This could have been prevented if the Irish government had taken an interstate case against the Legacy Act. They can still do this and I would strongly encourage them to do so.

“I am calling on the Irish government to confront this denial of human rights and breach of international human rights law through an interstate case and international action against the British government.”
