Bradley welcomes new information on Armstrong case

July 28, 2009

SDLP MLA Dominic Bradley welcomed the news of more information becoming available which could be helpful in recovering Mr Armstrong’s remains.

“The Armstrong family and the families of the other Disappeared have had an extremely long and harrowing wait for news of where their loved ones are buried. They deserve closure on what’s been an extremely painful period of their lives,” he said.

“The Commission for the Disappeared has been set up for 10 years now – in that time Northern Ireland has moved on to such an extent that there can be no reason for anyone with information not to come forward. It is important that this message is conveyed as widely as possible.”

SDLP Crossmaglen Councillor, Geraldine Donnelly, said the Armstrong family deserve a final resting place to grieve properly.

“Mr Armstrong’s loved ones deserve and have the right to a Christian burial and I appeal to anyone who has any further information which could be helpful in the location of Mr Armstrong’s remains or, indeed, that of any of the other Disappeared, to come forward to the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims’ Remains,” said Councillor Donnelly.
