Kelly accuses NIO of wrecking Agreement

Sinn Féin's Gerry Kelly has accused the British government's Northern Ireland Office of deliberately preventing the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.

Speaking in Dublin today, Mr Kelly claimed that the NIO was responsible for the decision to allow Orange Order supporters to breach Parades Commission rulings at recent marches in Belfast and Lurgan.

Mr Kelly claimed the NIO had also sought to block the implementation of the Patten policing reforms in the North and said the prospects for a fresh peace deal later this year were slim unless the British government took measures to address the matter.
