In the Belfast High Court today, Friday 5 December, Justice Weir granted leave for a full judicial review in the matter of the Ministry of Defence's decision to continue to retain the soldiers who murdered Peter McBride in the British Army. This is the third time that lawyers acting for Peter's mother, Jean McBride, have brought the issue before the High Court in judicial review proceedings.

In court today was Peter's sister, Kelly McBride, who recently stood as a candidate in the London Brent East by-election and Robert Evans, a sitting Labour Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and defeated Labour candidate in the by-election, who flew to Belfast today to meet the McBride family.
