Veronica Guerin: A declaration from British and Irish editors
Friday 28 June 1996
Veronica Guerin was murdered for being a journalist. She was a brave and brilliant reporter who was gunned down for being too tenacious in her investigations of organised crime in Ireland.
We view this assassination as a fundamental attack on the free press which is essential to the democratic process. Journalists will not be intimidated. We hereby commit our news organisations to continue the investigation of the stories which cost Veronica Guerin her life.
