Dublin / Monaghan families sue British Govt over 1974 bombings
We act on behalf of 21 families and survivors of the Dublin Monaghan bombings who are suing the British Govt and its agencies alleging collusion in the murders of their loved ones.
Today we will ask the High court to order the PSNI /MOD and SEC of state for NI to serve their Defence to claims lodged nearly 2 years ago.
Speaking prior to the hearing solicitor Kevin Winters said:
“this application is significant because we cant push for release of important materials until Defences are filed – the legal process can be terribly frustrating for families bereaved in the Conflict so theres an obligation on all of the parties including ourselves to try and expedite matters”
Margaret Urwin of JUSTICE FOR THE FORGOTTEN added:
“for 40 years since the atrocities we have fought to get the authorities to release all of the archive documents which would help bring closure for the bereaved and injured
We really hope the High court in Belfast will at some stage soon intervene and make the necessary orders”
We anticipate the court putting in place a timetable for the next stages of the civil proceedings.
