How does continued paramilitary activity impact victims and survivors of the Troubles? MPs examine
Paramilitary groups’ coercive control of some communities in Northern Ireland, including the influence of murals depicting those groups, will be taken up by the Committee when it hears from Troubles victims’ and survivors’ representatives.
The Commission for Victims and Survivors, in written evidence to the Committee, has commented that the continued presence of paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland represents the most potent threat to the wellbeing of victims and survivors of the Troubles.
Ahead of this, the Committee will take evidence from the Stop Attacks Forum, a group formed to seek an end to paramilitary violence through dialogue. It has called for the UK and Irish Governments to do more to tackle the issue in written evidence to the Committee.
