Lunn meets with Ballymurphy Massacre victims’ families

Lagan Valley Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has today met with families of those killed in the Ballymurphy Massacre in 1971.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “This was a very useful meeting. The hurt still exists and it is vital that the voices of families and survivors are heard. The pain that that was caused in 1971 is still felt and people deserve to know about the events surrounding what happened in Ballymurphy over those three days.

“It is extremely important that Northern Ireland addresses its past and that a comprehensive process is put in place to address the legacy of violence in here. We need an integrated process to help meet people’s need for truth and justice.

“A cost effective process to deal with the legacy of the past must be implemented and we need dialogue led by the Secretary of State between parties to deliver such a process. Obviously, lengthy and expensive public inquiries are no longer in favour but there should be a means by which the truth of what happened can be brought out.”
