A Dungannon solicitor has called upon the state to end the ‘current vacuum and create a proper investigative process’ to deal with cases arising out of the Troubles.
Shauna Carberry, from P Fahy & Co, represents no fewer than 16 families who have been bereaved through the conflict.
The firm represents many families including Mrs Teresa Kelly, widow of Patsy Kelly, who have now lodged a formal complaint with the Police Ombudsman after recent evidence emerged highlighting key failings in the police investigation.
The family of Tommy Casey, murdered by UVF gunmen, when he went to a neighbour’s house at Moveagh Road, Cookstown on 26th October 1990, is another killing under investigation by the Dungannon based company.
The Casey family have endured 24 years of heartache exacerbated by the continual failure to deal with the investigations of this nature.
The family were told by the Historical Enquiries Team in May 2013 that this case was connected to a series of killings in the mid-Ulster area in the late 1980’s and early 1990s.
Through their solicitor, the Casey family have lodged a complaint with the Police Ombudsman, and met with Dr Michael Maguire, as recently as two weeks ago.
