Victims of British killings `forgotten'

 

Those killed by the British state or its agents are the forgotten victims of the Troubles in the North, according to Relatives for Justice.

The group has called for the opening of the files on these killings and the publication of the Stalker-Sampson report on an alleged "shoot-to-kill" policy, and the Stevens inquiry into alleged collusion.

Ms Eilish McAnespie, a spokeswoman for the group, said they recognised the importance of the Early Release Information Scheme to help people come to terms with the release of their loved ones' killers.

However, she added, "even in death there is no equality in Northern Ireland. Those killed by the British state or its agents remain the forgotten victims of the Troubles."
