We would like to extend our sincere condolences to Teresa and the entire Jordan family on the death of Hugh. Hugh tirelessly fought for justice for his son Pearse who was shot dead by the RUC in November 1992.

He fought many successful Court battles in Belfast, London and Strasbourg and it was he who secured changes in the law to make members of the security forces who used lethal force compellable witnesses at inquests and changes in the law to enable detailed verdicts to be returned at inquests.

Many other families bereaved during the conflict will in the coming years benefit from Hugh’s courage, resilience and foresight. May he rest in peace.
