South Armagh victims group FAIR says it has received confirmation that the Coroner’s Office will soon hold a preliminary inquest hearing into the 1976 Kingsmills massacre.

“This is the first time that an inquest will take place into an atrocity carried out against the unionist community,” said FAIR spokesman Willie Frazer.

“This has been achieved despite the very limited resources available to us.”

He added: “We do not begrudge finance given to groups such as the Pat Finucane Centre or Relatives for Justice but we do ask why similar funding has not been made available to organisations such as ourselves?”
