Where does Sinn Fein stand on Omagh inquiry?

DUP Legacy spokesperson Emma Little-Pengelly MLA has said the Republic of Ireland’s criticism of the UK Government’s approach to legacy issues rings hollow when the same Irish Government refuses to hold a Public Inquiry into the Omagh Bomb atrocity.

Mrs Little-Pengelly said,

“The High Court was clear on the need for an Omagh Bomb Public Inquiry in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, yet Irish Ministers have refused to hold an Inquiry.

It is shameless and incredible that Dublin, where there has been an effective cessation to Troubles related cases since 1998, feels able to criticise the UK government despite its own abysmal record.

Sinn Fein should also give clarity on its position about a Republic of Ireland Inquiry into the Omagh Bomb. Conor Murphy seemed to be throwing dust in the air on this issue on Radio Ulster by calling for an all-Ireland inquiry. The Omagh victims deserve clarity from Sinn Fein.”
