Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady has said that the British government must immediately release legacy inquest funding, following a delegation to London recently alongside the Loughinisland families’ campaign for truth and justice.

The delegation, also consisting of Chris Hazzard MP, Paul Maskey MP and Emma Rogan MLA, submitted a petition to 10 Downing Street.

 

 

The petition called on the British government to honour their international human rights commitments, followed by a meeting with Karen Bradley, British Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

The Newry Armagh MP said, “It was a great privilege to join the Loughinisland families’ campaign at 10 Downing Street this week.

“Alongside the campaign and their legal representatives, we submitted a petition to the British government calling on them to honour their human rights and legacy obligations.

 

 

“Our delegation also met with Karen Bradley, British Secretary of State to the north. 

“We made clear that the complicity of her government and the DUP in blocking truth for my family, and others, is unjust and unacceptable. This undignified denial of truth must end immediately.

Brady added, “The British government must move now to release legacy funding, as agreed in the most recent phase of talks, and bring this injustice to an end.”
