Bloody Sunday report delayed again
Friday 25 September 2009
Lord Saville's report into the events surrounding the Bloody Sunday shootings in Londonderry in 1972 have been delayed yet again and will not be presented to ministers until March next year.
The report, expected to run to 4,500 pages, is virtually complete but it is understood technical difficulties linked to its printing are holding up the process. Families of the 13 civilians shot dead in the incident fear that the report might not come out until next summer, because the general election will further delay its release. This will be six years after the inquiry effectively ended and 12 years after the peace process was started by Tony Blair in January 1998.
Relatives of the victims are to seek a meeting with the Northern Ireland Secretary, Shaun Woodward, in an effort to have the report's new publication date brought forward to avoid a clash with the general election.
