That this House notes with sadness that 21 July 2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the Bloody Friday bombings in Belfast; further notes that the events of the day were some of the most horrific acts of terrorism ever carried out by the IRA, which set off 22 bombs in the city centre in an 80 minute period, killing nine people and injuring 130 others including 77 women and children; and recognises that many of the victims and their families still bear the mental and physical scars to this day, that we should never forget to honour the memory of those killed and that justice demands that those in the Republican movement and Sinn Fein leadership with information should even now come forward to provide truth and closure for the victims.
