I do not believe that there are sufficient grounds to justify a further review or inquiry above and beyond those that have already taken place or are ongoing.
The reality is that Aiden need not have died ... Both the British and Irish governments failed to protect the human rights of those people ... I think it’s important to note that this is a government who are actually holding other governments to account over human rights abuses ... Last week they wanted permissions from Parliament to go to war, or to launch attacks on Syria. Over a year ago we gave this Government a report which showed that state agencies had failed and 31 people had died and 250 were injured unnecessarily.The British government has also proved reluctant to make available to Irish authorities its files pertaining to the Dublin Monaghan bombings of 1974 when 30 people lost their lives.
