Westminster backing for anti-Troubles ‘amnesty’ campaigners

Victims of the Troubles have received backing from political parties in Westminster as they continue their campaign against a proposed ban on future prosecutions related to the conflict. In July, the Government announced plans for a statute of limitations that would end all prosecutions for Troubles incidents up to April 1998, but a range of parties have now signed a pledge rejecting these proposals. Military veterans as well as ex-paramilitaries would be protected from prosecution under the measure. The proposals would also end all legacy inquests and civil actions related to the conflict.
