The Argus, 10 May 2002:

Oliver family now seeking answers from SF candidate

The family of Tom Oliver from Castlecarragh, Riverstown, murdered by the IRA ten years ago, in their first public comment since the murder of their father have written to "The Argus" seeking an answer from Sinn Fein candidate, Arthur Morgan to a number of questions.

The letter signed by Tom Oliver's only son, Eugene reads:

“With the general election on top of us, it is time to ask Sinn Fein candidate Arthur Morgan a number of questions.

“For the past few years, Sinn Fein has been campaigning for a judicial inquiry into the brutal murder of a local man, Seamus Ludlow. Arthur Morgan is rightly encouraging people to assist in every possible way to bring Seamus Ludlow’s killers to justice.

“What does Mr Morgan, as the Sinn Fein candidate, have to say about another cowardly, local, brutal, kidnapping and murder — that of my father, Tom Oliver? 

“What is the difference between the murders of Seamus Ludlow and Tom Oliver? 

“Sinn Fein recently celebrated 30 years of the "greatest guerrilla army in the world’" and presented distinguished service awards to the families of "volunteers" who died.

“Does Arthur Morgan have anything to say to my mother, my six sisters and myself who were widowed and left fatherless by that brave army?”
