Following are some of those who have expressed concern at the injustices of the Sallins Case.
Amnesty International and The Irish Council for Civil Liberties have jointly called on the Irish Government to comply with its international obligation to hold an impartial public inquiry into the Sallins Case.
Immediately after the round-up of over 40 Irish citizens in 1976 during the garda investigation of the robbery, Amnesty publicly called for the inquiry, as required by international UN obligations. A 100-page report of their findings after their 1978 on-the-ground investigation, was submitted to the government. Ever since, they have reiterated their demand.
The Irish Council for Civil Liberties, formed immediately after the mass arrests by, amongst others, Mary Robinson (later to be President of Ireland) and law professor Kadar Asmal has always demanded such an inquiry.
