Families Acting For Innocent Relatives (FAIR) are delighted that Secretary of State Peter Hain has announced the scrapping of the nefarious 'On The Runs' legislation. As a voice for victims of terrorism in South Armagh, FAIR has lobbied and campaigned against this bill in Northern Ireland and at Westminister, deeming it an insult to victims right to justice.
FAIR Director William Frazer states ' it is good to see that the pressure applied on the Government by ourselves and other decent thinking people has assisted to scrap this bill. The Governments attempt to further buy off Sinn Fein/IRA has backfired -with democracy and Human Rights triumphing in the end. Its the first bit of sense we have seen from Mr Hain since he took office, lets hope there is more to come.'
FAIR would like to assure those in power that this is not the only issue with which we are campaigning. We will continue to work on behalf of our members including fighting for proper recognition for the needs of innocent victims in South Armagh.
