We have great pleasure to host the thoughts of Stan Carberry jnr tonight as part of RFJ’s response to James Brokenshire’s moves to pull the shutters down on dealing with the past.

Should any other family wish to post their own thoughts please email

Stan’s father, Stanislaus Carberry was killed by the British army in November 1972.

“To Whom It Concerns,

“As a victim, I find this very disappointing and upsetting for the Secretary of State to let victims down for truth and a proper investigation into the murder of my dad and other victims.

“I have a mother who is now over 80 years of age and feel this lady, that brought up 6 children who ranged from 9 years of age to 6 months when my dad was killed, has had no justice for the murder of her husband by a solider of the British Army.

“I find that the British government will go to any extremes to deny my family truth and justice. My belief is that we the family have had our rights taken away from us by the same people who took our father away from us.

“The British government have a duty under the ECHR to give families truth and justice. I find it unacceptable for them to dictate how they deal with victims of the conflict, when they were at the core of the conflict.

“If this was an army in another country they would be demanding truth and justice for their loss. This is about equality for all victims no matter where they are from.

“Thank you

“Stan Carberry jnr
