Political parties support a public inquiry into one murder when many other families who lost a loved are awaiting justice

I am amazed at the parties in the assembly wanting a full inquiry into one murder by terrorists when there are many families still waiting for years for the police legacy branch to start investigations into their loved one’s murder.

I have waited nearly 30 years. If it is anything like Bloody Sunday inquiry it will be costly and take years to complete.

If the result claims that no evidence of security force involvement it will be rejected by the family.

We have Covid to content with and many people have lost their jobs . I wonder if the parties can tell which government department the finance for a full inquiry should come from for it is simple the country cannot afford to give one murder a full inquiry and ignore the many others still waiting for closure.
