Television News, online, 29 November 2006:
Party demand public inquiry
A public inquiry in Dublin has been demanded to
look into alleged British state involvement in murders in the Irish
Republic ahead of a government report on the killings.
government committee has concluded its investigation and is due to
report today about bombings at Dublin Airport and Dundalk in 1975, and
at Castleblayney, Co Monaghan, in 1976, which killed five people.
Trevor Sargent, Ireland's Green Party leader, has demanded government
action on the findings of the report, which he said are deeply
has backed a call from victims` group Justice for the Forgotten for a
public inquiry into the bombings.
"The reports of collusion described by the Oireachtas (Irish
parliament) Committee's report are deeply disturbing," he said.
"The Irish Government had concerns in the mid-1970s that loyalist
paramilitaries and agents of the British state were colluding to cause
harm to life in the south of Ireland.
"This confirms the pattern of behaviour that has recently been
reported by international legal and human rights experts on behalf of
the Pat Finucane Centre in Derry. "
Earlier this month, an international panel of human rights experts
released a 115-page report that claims to have uncovered evidence of
British Army and police collusion in dozens of sectarian murders.
The report says that there was considerable and credible evidence of
security-force involvement in 74 of the 76 sectarian murders they
investigated, half of them in Northern Ireland and the other half in
"The consistent reports of high-level collusion demand a public
inquiry," said Mr Sargent. "I fully support Justice for the
Forgotten's call for such an inquiry."
