McCallion slams Tory over 'hurtful' Bloody Sunday claims
4 Mar 2019
Comments relating to Bloody Sunday by British Tory MP Boris Johnson were disrespectful and hurtful to the families of those killed, Foyle Sinn Fein MP Elisha McCallion has said. Ms McCallion said: "The comments from British Tory MP Boris Johnson about Bloody Sunday were disgraceful and hurtful to the relatives of those killed. "The remarks also showed disrespect to the ongoing court case into the massacre by attempting to preempt the legal outcome. "What happened on Bloody Sunday was not a 'misjudgement' as Boris Johnson has claimed. It was murder and that's why there is an ongoing murder inquiry. "The relatives of those killed on Bloody Sunday have campaigned for truth and justice for decades and are entitled to justice." Ms McCallion concluded: "All relatives of those killed during the conflict are entitled to the truth over what happened to their loved ones and the British government need to step up and implement the legacy mechanisms already agreed."
