Aidan McAnespie was fatally shot by a solider on his way to a Gaelic football match in Northern Ireland in ’88 during the Troubles. 34 years later, the family have finally secured trial into his death which will conclude tomorrow.
The trial represents the due process that the UK Government is seeking to shut down for victims, by introducing a new Troubles law which would introduce a de-facto amnesty for human rights violations committed during the conflict in Northern Ireland.
The plans would:
1. Interfere with the justice system, undermine the rule of law
2. Exacerbate the pain felt by victims who have been fighting for decades for truth justice, and accountability
Soon, victims could be permanently denied justice.
“Every grieving family deserves a chance for justice.” Sean McAnespie, brother of Aidan McAnespie
The UK must abandon plans to legislate for impunity.
No one is above the law.
