UK Covid live: Tory West Midlands mayor says he wants people to wear masks on public transport


The past is complex, and we have always believed that any process of dealing with the legacy of our troubled past should be victim-centered. Victims will see these proposals as focused on the perpetrator rather than the victim and an insult both to the memory of those innocent victims who lost their lives in our “Troubles” and to their families.
Justice was corrupted in 1998 with the release of prisoners and then by the fugitive letters of Tony Blair. Naturally, many victims will feel that these proposals represent a further denial of the possibility of obtaining justice for their loved ones.
There can be no equivalence between the soldier and the policeman who served their country and those cowardly terrorists who hid behind masks and terrorized under the cover of darkness. We find such an attempt at equivalence offensive.
The Democratic Unionist Party, both in public and in private, has opposed and continues to oppose any form of amnesty. Everyone must be equal before the law and also subject to the law. We will oppose any plan that grants effective amnesty to those who have murdered and maimed for many decades.
Although we understand that over time the prospects for justice diminish for many, but these proposals, if adopted, will completely extinguish this flickering flame of justice and constitute a moral overtaking that cannot be accepted.
