Families in Omagh bomb inquiry plea


25/12/2005 - 10:57:29

Relatives of the victims of the Omagh bombing are to put new pressure on Northern Ireland Human Rights Chief Commissioner Monica McWilliams to back demands for a full cross-border inquiry.

The families of the dead are to meet her in Belfast for the first time next month, as well as Garda Commissioner Noel Conroy.

They want a full hearing to take into account evidence from both sides of the border, and have also contacted the Human Rights Commission here to seek their support.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair already told the group that such a public investigation must wait until all criminal prosecutions have been concluded.
