Families of victims killed in the Northern Ireland conflict are warning that a proposed murder amnesty is being driven by the British state’s desire to cover up its own historical misdemeanours.

The plan to end prosecutions for deaths, torture and other serious crimes related to The Troubles was announced by Boris Johnson in the run up to the 2019 General Election and a Bill is currently being steered through the House of Lords after passing its Commons stages.

Adrian Goldberg hears from Billy McManus who argues that the new law would allow the killers of his father William to evade justice; and Julie Hambleton, whose sister Maxine was among 21 revellers killed in the Birmingham Pub Bombings in 1974.

PLUS Grainne Teggart, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for Northern Ireland.
