Speaking after NIQs Mr Campbell said,
“The Government’s proposals to legislate for an amnesty for those who terrorised Northern Ireland and its people, have been overwhelmingly rejected by innocent victims.
There is no support for the Government’s attempt to close down the prospect of justice.
With over 90% of murders in Northern Ireland carried out by terrorist organisations, many will see these proposals as a further reward for those who targeted innocent civilians.
Any proposals on dealing with the past must be victim-focused, not a tool to inflict further trauma and hurt upon those who have already suffered so much.
The role of the Irish State during the Troubles must be central to any proposals, given the widely reported acts of alleged collusion with the IRA.
On this issue the Government has got it wrong. A process which does not have the support of innocent victims is doomed to failure.
The Government must listen to the united voice of opposition from victims and abandon these morally corrupt proposals.”
