The Dundalk Democrat, 14 August 1999:
"Ludlow inquiry must be public"
- says Arthur Morgan
Louth Sinn Fein Councillor, Arthur Morgan, has described the decision of the Victims Commission to call for a private inquiry into the killing of Seamus Ludlow as disturbing.
Cllr. Morgan said: "Seamus Ludlow was murdered by UDR soldiers on 1st May 1976. Since that time, this case has been ignored by the State. Despite the efforts of Seamus' family and friends to uncover the facts, they have been met with evasion or indifference by the authorities.
"If it is to have any real value, the inquiry must be held in public. There are vital questions to be answered by State agencies, including the Garda, the Garda Special Branch in Louth and Dublin, and Irish Army Intelligence"
