JUSTICE 'ON THE RUN'

It is with disbelief that victims respond to Gerry Adams statement claiming the Security Force personal benefiting from the new amnesty legislation, will cause hurt, pain and suffering amongst the victims. As a representative of an organisation who brokered this evil legislation solely for the benefit of their terrorist comrades, an organisation which butchered over 400 of his own community, he obviously feels that suffering of the innocent victims is irrelevant - perhaps the families of terrorists killed while committing criminal acts deserve more justice in Mr Adams eyes.

The pure hypocrisy has enraged many of our members. It has become obvious that the only thing now ‘on the run’ in Northern Ireland is justice itself.

Victims across Northern Ireland have been rallying together in recent months, garnering support from senior politicians both in Northern Ireland but also mainland UK and the ROI. This outrageous comment will only strengthen resolves and encourage us to push onwards for an abandonment of this heinous legislation.

‘As far as we’re concerned, the Government can force whatever they wish upon us, but we shall not yield in our quest for justice and we shall refuse to acknowledge the kangaroo courts which will facilitate this farce of amnesty. Rest assured we shall fight ever avenue open to us in the UK and Europe courts to ensure our loved one murderers will not go unpunished, that is why we will refuse to partake in this charade that the British Government call the judicial system, even if it means victims being held in contempt of court for refusing to attend’.

Tony Blair and Bertie Ahern should hang their heads in shame. They, no doubt want peace as we do, however to deal with the devil will only prolong the suffering, prolong the bitterness and weaken the possibility of sustainable peace in Northern Ireland. Victims voices must be heard to ensure this.
