Sunak urges Irish Govt to ‘cooperate’ on NI legacy cases

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has said he wants to see “further cooperation” by the Irish Government over the Omagh bombing and other cases.

Mr Sunak said he has spoken to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar about this and “many other cases that involve Irish jurisdiction”.

He was responding in the House of Commons to DUP leader Jeffrey Donaldson who complained about the attitude of the Irish Government.

“Many families of victims in Northern Ireland are deeply disappointed by the lack of co-operation from the Irish Government in relation to murders committed in their jurisdiction or from their jurisdiction,” he said.

Mr Donaldson said in the case of the Omagh bombing the Irish Government had declined to hold a public inquiry, despite the the courts urging it to do so.

Prime Minister Sunak said the Northern Ireland Secretary had raised this matter with the Irish Government and would continue to do so.
