Jean McConville's family will ‘fight to the bitter end for justice’
Sunday 04 May 2014
The son of a woman shot and secretly buried by the IRA has vowed to fight for justice “to the bitter end”, following the release of Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams.
Jean McConville, a 37-year-old widow and mother of 10, was abducted from her Belfast home in 1972, shot and secretly buried. Her remains were found in Co Louth in 2003.
Mr Adams was released on Sunday evening, having been detained and questioned for four days over alleged involvement in her abduction and death.
Mrs McConville's son, Michael, said: “The McConville family is going to stay to the bitter end until we get justice.
”These have been quite difficult days for the McConville family and they have been very stressful. We would like the people to know that the family is going to stay to the bitter end until we get justice for our mother.
“We know it is going to be a long road, but we have already been fighting for justice for 40-odd years and we are not going to stop now.”
Last month, Ivor Bell, 77, a leading member of the IRA in the 1970s, was charged with aiding and abetting the murder of Mrs McConville.
