A victims group has challenged the Victims Commission to reveal details of how it described Troubles-related violence to the Haass talks team.

Innocent Victims United (IVU) said it is unacceptable that the final draft of the Haass proposals refers to “actors” in a “conflict” rather than terrorists “motivated by ethnic and sectarian hatreds”.

IVU spokesman Kenny Donaldson said it was important the Commission for Victims and Survivors (CVSNI) publicly acknowledged that “those involved in the violence and those who sustained the conditions for violence” acted “without justification”.
