McCord seeks U.S. justice for son
McCord, who arrived in the U.S. early last week and is due to leave this weekend, has attended numerous dinner functions where he has told his story to those in attendance.
During his time in the U.S. he also met with the Northern Ireland Bureau and the British ambassador in Washington.
When asked, 12 years on, what motivates him to keep fighting the fight, McCord said it was his promise to his son. “Raymond keeps me going,” he said.
“I didn’t get justice. I didn’t get truth. Nuala O’Loan exposed what went on and the government accepted it but they didn’t do anything. The government had not yet put their hands up over issues related to collusion. It’s one thing to put their hands up in Parliament and say it’s a terrible thing what happened to Raymond McCord Junior, but it’s another thing to do something about it,” he added.
“I would love to go back to Belfast and have a normal life same as everyone else, but that won’t happen until I have justice for my son.”
