Victims and families must get their long overdue Truth and Justice."

Why Now?

Going back to the 1980's there had been various calls for a Public Inquiry. They had all been unsuccessful. A recently rejuvenated campaign of Political & Legal action combined with National & Internal media attention and newly discovered evidence led to the announcement of a Public Inquiry by the Prime Minister in July 2017.
