Irish government must release Crowley Report immediately -McCartney

Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson Raymond McCartney  has called on the Irish government to release the Crowley Report immediately so that as much disclosure relating to the death of Aidan McAnespie is made available.

The Foyle  MLA made the call after news that a soldier has been charged with manslaughter over the 1988 killing of Aidan McAnespie at a British army checkpoint as he made his way to Gaelic football match.

Raymond McCartney  said:

“The family of Aidan McAnespie have waited over 30 years for truth and justice and they are commended for their persistence.

“ We are calling once again on the Irish government to release the Crowley Report immediately so that as much information to assist with full disclosure for the case is made available.

“Hopefully this will begin the process of closure for the family.

“Sinn Féin will continue to support the family in their endeavours for truth.”
