Kingsmill families are entitled to truth – Kelly

Speaking following the conclusion of the inquest into the killings of ten people at Kingsmill in 1976, Sinn Féin Policing Spokesperson Gerry Kelly said, “The Kingsmill families are entitled to truth and justice.

“In 2014, the two governments and the main Assembly parties signed up to the Stormont House Agreement which included human rights compliant mechanisms to ensure all families can access truth and justice, through independent investigations and the continuation of judicial processes such as inquests, truth recovery and the legal system. 

“The British Government’s shameful Legacy Act is about closing the door on families ever getting truth and justice. 

“They should repeal it and fully implement the Stormont House Agreement in a human rights compliant manner.”
