The UK Government is expected to announce controversial plans to effectively end all criminal proceedings linked to the Troubles.
Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis is to announce a new statute of limitations on crimes related to the Troubles carried out before 1998 in a statement to Parliament.
The move, which is opposed by all five of the North's main political parties, has been described as a de facto amnesty for former soldiers and paramilitaries.
But the British government's rejected that claim, saying Northern Ireland can "move forward as one".
When it was first reported back in May, the SDLP leader Colum Eastwood labeled it a betrayal of the Peace Process.
Meanwhile, John Teggart, whose father was murdered during the Ballymurphy Massacre said it was a “slap in the face” for all victims.
Overnight, Stephen Travers who survived the 1975 Miami Showband Massacre said it was a “sad day for Britain.”
“It seems to be the last sting of a dying wasp when they have to put their hands up and say, ‘well you have got us so we are now going to make up a law that pardons ourselves,’” he said.
“That is a sad day for Britain.”
The British Government has said it hopes to pass the legislation in the Autumn.
