Sinn Féin will continue to stand with families in their campaigns for truth and justice – Kelly 

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said the party will continue to stand with families in their campaigns for truth and justice and called on the Irish government to take an interstate case against the British government on their flawed Legacy Act. 

Speaking after families who lost loved ones during the conflict protested today, the North Belfast MLA said:

“The British government pushed through their Legacy Act despite having no support from victims’ families and survivors, the Irish government, human rights experts both domestically and internationally, leading international lawyers from across Europe, Senators and Congress members in the US, as well as the EU Human Rights’ Commissioner, the UN Rapporteurs, and all of the political parties on this island.    

“The Legacy Act is atrocious and shows a blatant disregard for victims and their families and their right to access truth and justice. 

“The Irish government need 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.

“Sinn Féin will continue to stand with families in their campaigns for truth and justice, many of whom have been campaigning with dignity and determination for five decades.”
