McCord meets Ahern over son's murder


22/03/2006 - 07:03:49

The father of a loyalist murder victim is to seek support for a public inquiry when he meets Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in Dublin today.

Raymond McCord is waging a campaign for justice over the UVF killing of his son, Raymond Jr in north Belfast in 1997.

Nuala O’Loan, the Northern Ireland Police Ombudsman, is due to report on her investigation into the allegations later this year.

Mr McCord has already met most of Northern Ireland‘s main political parties as part of his campaign.

Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams is among those who have pledged their help and insisting the McCord family have the right to the truth.

Mr McCord Jr, a 22-year-old former RAF operator, was beaten to death and dumped in a north Belfast quarry in 1997.
