Message from British Irish Rights Watch, London.

British Irish rights watch is an independent non-governmental organisation and registered charity that monitors the human rights dimension of the conflict and the peace process in Northern Ireland. Our services are available to anyone whose human rights have been affected by the conflict, regardless of religious, political or community affiliations, and we take no position on the eventual constitutional outcome of the peace process.

In February 1999 we delivered a report  to the British and Irish governments concerning the brutal and callous murder of Seamus Ludlow in 1976. Our concerns were these:

his relatives still did not know the truth about his death over 20 years later
the truth about his death appeared to have been covered up
evidence had emerged which suggested collusion.

Those concerns remain today.

Seamus Ludlow died a lonely and terrifying death that he had done nothing whatever to deserve. His family have fought a long and frustrating battle to obtain justice for his memory. We salute their courage and determination. We support their call for a public inquiry into his death and we hope that people reading this page will do the same.
