Today’s announcement does not change the findings of the Saville Report – Tony Lloyd

Tony Lloyd MP, Labour’s Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, commenting on today’s announcement concerning Bloody Sunday, said:

“Today is yet another difficult day for the families of those killed on Bloody Sunday. Today’s announcement does not change the findings of the Saville Report that those killed 47 years ago were innocent and the fight for truth and justice over many decades was vindicated.

“These families have had to wait far too long and it is in the public interest that the prosecution takes place as soon as possible.

“There are many more families from all sides of Northern Ireland’s divisive conflict who are still waiting for truth and justice. Today we should remember all those who lost their lives in The Troubles, the dignity shown by the Bloody Sunday families and redouble our efforts to ensure lasting peace and justice in Northern Ireland.”
