1970s Torture, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment

McIvor Farrell have now commenced a claim for compensation against the Ministry of Defence, PSNI and British Government in relation to allegations of Torture and Inhuman and Degrading Treatment on behalf of a client who was arrested, interned and subjected to the most horrific conditions of detention in the early 1970s. The Plaintiff was held without Trial and during his time in custody was subjected to numerous beatings, sleep deprivation and thrown from an Army helicopter blindfolded as it hovered above the ground.

Solicitor Conor Woods has described it as a “landmark case that will have far reaching consequences for those who suffered greatly at the hands of State Forces during the recent conflict in Northern Ireland” and has encouraged others to come forward so that these past wrongs may be addressed.

If you, or any family member, has suffered as a result of  State violence during the conflict in Northern Ireland please contact us for a no obligation free consultation with one of our legacy solicitors without delay.
