McCartney: CRJ has done nothing to bring killers to justice…

Catherine McCartney has told Tony Blair about her concerns about the possible role of Sinn Fein members in her brother’s murder and a subsequent cover-up:

‘Inside Downing Street we told Tony Blair about a number of those involved in the cover-up of Robert’s murder and the fact that they are now involved in CRJ schemes. But he and his government are just going ahead regardless and creating justice ghettoes for working-class communities.

‘Members of Sinn Fein were involved either directly in Robert’s murder or the cover-up. But it seems the British government is set against doing anything that would upset Sinn Fein. It’s Sinn Fein that is behind these schemes because they want to keep control of their communities. The CRJ has done nothing to bring Robert’s killers to justice.’
