A woman who lost her brother in the Omagh bomb has challenged councillors who voted to oppose the extradition of a man found liable for the atrocity to talk about human rights while looking her in the eye.
The vote by members of a Fermanagh and Omagh Council committee on the motion, involving Liam Campbell, has caused fury.
Campbell was previously found liable, along with convicted Real IRA leader Michael McKevitt, for the 1998 bombing. It followed a landmark civil trial by some of the families.
Wednesday's motion proposed that the council "writes to the offices of An Taoiseach and the Department of Justice and Equality in support of Irish citizen, Liam Campbell, against his extradition to Lithuania, to protect the fundamental human and civil rights of an Irish citizen against human rights abuse".
The proposal, brought before the council's Policy and Resources Committee by independent councillor Bernice Swift, came in at 23-14 in favour of opposing the extradition.
It was opposed by unionists but passed with support from the SDLP, Sinn Fein and others.
The SDLP has since apologised and said it will oppose the motion when it comes before the full council for debate later this month.
Yesterday an independent councillor who opposed the extradition apologised for any hurt caused to the families. Dr Josephine Deehan said she too reserves the right to change her vote when it is discussed by the full council.
Claire Monteith's brother Alan Radford (16) was among the 29 people - including a woman pregnant with twins - killed in the August 1998 bombing. She has challenged councillors to meet her.
She described the proposal as "insensitive, cruel and intentionally hurtful".
She said: "Victims are accustomed to their emotions being trampled on, but this was in a class of its own.
"The intent was to get this hastily moved toward ratification, without any thought or concern for those affected by the actions of Liam Campbell."
Ms Monteith questioned the rationale of the motion.
She added: "The proposal was apparently grounded on human rights. What about victims' human rights?
"They were wiped out. Others lives were destroyed, some physically, some mentally. All are wounded for life.
"These festering wounds, compounded by injustice, are now worsened by this insensitive, cruel and intentionally hurtful move.
"If they want to rely on human rights - stand up and fight for ours too." She added: "I challenge every councillor who voted for this to look me in the eye and tell me about human rights and that of every innocent murdered."
Yesterday Michael Gallagher, who lost his son Aiden in the bomb, said he accepted the SDLP's apology after being contacted directly by the party's West Tyrone MLA Daniel McCrossan. Mr Gallagher said Mr McCrossan "apologised profusely" during their conversation.
SDLP councillor John Coye had earlier blamed his party's support for the motion on the fact that it was brought forward late and they did not know details about the individual.
Dr Deehan, the independent councillor who voted in favour of the proposal to oppose the extradition of Campbell, joined the SDLP members in criticising how the proposal was presented to the meeting.
"I regret that the families of the Omagh bombing feel hurt as that was never my intention. I voted on this purely on human rights grounds, but I reserve my right to change my vote when it before full council," she said.
"But the whole situation was badly handled. Councillors were caught unawares by the way the proposal was tagged on to any other urgent business at the end of the meeting."
Ms Deehan said she made her judgement purely on human rights grounds.
"There is an issue, whether we know the individual or not. I would oppose the extradition of anyone if we cannot guarantee fairness," she said.
Sinn Fein have not responded to repeated requests for comment.
Campbell, from Dundalk, is wanted in Lithuania over allegations he was part of an operation to buy guns and ammunition for the Real IRA.
