Ballymurphy demands truth

Published 15/10/2010

Last week a commemoration was held in Belfast City Cemetery for Jo-Jo O'Connor, who was killed in Ballymurphy on October 9, 2000. The date was significant as it was also his late grandfather, Francisco Notarantonio's 23rd anniversary.

For the past 23 years, many have campaigned for an independent inquiry into Francisco's death and the facts have slowly come to light. However, little or nothing has been done to uncover the truth behind Joe's killing.

There has been a deafening silence from nationalist politicians, as well as the Irish and British governments about his execution.

I support calls for an independent inquiry to establish the truth behind Joe O'Connor's killing.
