Further progress in "Ludlow" enquiries
The family of the late Seamus Ludlow, murdered in May 1976 have recently received correspondence from the Rt. Hon. Adam Ingram JP MP, Minister of State, writes Anne Marie Eaton.
In his correspondence Mr Ingram stated that Mr Tony Benn MP had forwarded a letter regarding Seamus' death and a copy of the recently published British Irish Rights Watch Report. He went on assure the the family that "every effort is being made to bring to justice those responsible for this appalling murder".
He added that while a police file on the murder is currently with the Director of Public Prosecutions in Northern Ireland "it would be inappropriate of me to make any further comment until the DPP investigation into the case is complete", he stated.
Met with An Taoiseach
Jimmy Sharkey, a nephew of the murdered Mountpleasant forestry worker travelled to Dublin recently where he met with An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. He met with An Taoiseach along with members of the Relatives for Justice Group.
On behalf of the family, Jimmy expressed the hopes for a public inquiry into Seamus' death and added that it was believed the identity of the murderers were known as far back as 1979.
Speaking to the "Democrat" this week, the family are delighted that many local representatives, TDs etc have all shown their support for the Ludlow Family.
