The following statement was release on behalf of the campaign today.
Loughgall Campaign withdraws all engagement with HET .
The Loughgall Truth and Justice Campaign has with immediate effect withdrawn all engagement with the HET.
Seven years ago, with serious reservations about engaging with the HET, the campaign, representing 9 families of those killed by the SAS at Loughgall in 1987, engaged in a process they hoped would get them one step closer to the truth about the killings that night. From the outset the families put on record their many reservations with the HET process and the fact that we did not believe it to be Article 2 compliant.
We have lost confidence in the HET process but remain steadfast in our campaign to have a full, independent, impartial, open investigation into the killings of our loved ones – and repeat again, a transparent process with no links to organisations and personnel with involvement in the covert operation at Loughgall.
