Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has welcomed the decision by the Attorney General to order a new Inquest into the death of IRA Volunteer Seamus Bradley during Operation Motorman in Derry in 1972.

Speaking from Europe Martina Anderson said:

“I am pleased for the family that the Attorney general has ordered a new Inquest into the events surrounding the shooting dead of their brother Seamus by a British soldier in 1972 during Operation Motorman.

“The family have at all times acted with integrity in their quest to find the truth about the killing of Seamus and the callous manner in which the British army failed to act in getting him medical assistance that would in all probability have saved his life.

“I will continue to give whatever support and assistance to the family that I can as they go through the process of preparing for the Inquest.”
