His call follows the Chief Constables comments last night on legacy issues at Queens University.

Raymond McCartney  said: 

“The issue of dealing the past and how to progress it was addressed in the Stormont House Agreement.

“The structures to deliver this were not set up due to the insistence of the British government that they maintain a veto power on any issue relating to the disclosure of information to victims families .

“It is this element that seems to be missing from the Chief Constable’s analysis.

“Victims of the conflict have a right to the truth about the past.”
