The Issues

Victims - For too long innocent victims of the Troubles have been ignored by our society. While there are complex needs of this diverse group, which go well beyond the financial or the practical, I nevertheless welcome the commitments and efforts made by both the previous and current First Ministers, Ian Paisley and Peter Robinson, to give support to innocent victims. This has resulted in the increased funding to the sector and the appointment of the Victims Commission. I believe that there should be a clear distinction between innocent victims of terrorism, and the perpetrators of these crimes, and oppose the current definition of a victim as contained in Westminster legislation. I believe that everyone should be equal before the law and consequently I would oppose any suggestion of an amnesty for terrorist crimes.
