Bereaved relatives have organised a Time for Truth day of action to protest against the UK Government’s plan to ban future legacy prosecutions. 

The proposed government amnesty would prevent prosecutions for Northern Ireland conflict-related offences.

Protests were organised at several venues north and south of the border.

Supporters will gather outside the High Court in Belfast as well as in Derry/Londonderry and Dublin.

The organisers say the proposed British Government’s amnesty would prevent prosecutions for conflict-related offences and close down present and future police and Police Ombudsman investigations, civil actions and legacy inquests.

 

Spokesperson for the Time for Truth Campaign, Ciarán MacAirt said:

“The families of the Time for Truth Campaign are mobilizing against Britain’s insidious and perfidious proposals which would have embarrassed Chile’s Pinochet dictatorship.”
