WAR CRIMES OF IMPUNITY BRITISH OCCUPIED IRELAND



I don't want your money, Bloody Sunday sister tells MoD



01OF 77

Bloody Sunday. January 1972
Relatives of one of the Bloody Sunday victims firmly rejected any offer of Government compensation today. Sisters Linda and Kate Nash, whose teenage brother William was among 14 men who died after paratroopers opened fire on civil rights protesters in Londonderry in January 1972, said: "I find it repulsive."
Sisters Linda and Kate Nash, whose teenage brother William was among 14 men who died after paratroopers opened fire on civil rights protesters in Derry in January 1972, said: "I find it repulsive."
The Ministry of Defence confirmed today that moves are under way to compensate the families following representation from solicitors acting on behalf of some of the relatives.
The Nash sisters said they would not take money for personal financial gain.
"Not under any circumstances will I ever accept money for the loss of my brother.
"I find it repulsive, taking anything from the MoD. If the MoD wants to set up bursaries they can, but not in my brother's name."
Prime Minister David Cameron has already apologised to victims and said the shootings were wrong.
An MOD spokesman said: "We acknowledge the pain felt by these families for nearly 40 years, and that members of the armed forces acted wrongly. For that, the Government is deeply sorry.
"We are in contact with the families' solicitors and where there is a legal liability to pay compensation, we will do so."
Lord Saville drew up a landmark report last year which criticised the Army over the killings.
