The Irish News, 14 June 2000:

Ahern accused of ignoring victims' pleas

By Sharon O'Neill

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern was last night under renewed pressure to launch independent public inquiries into a number of suspected loyalist murders.

In a statement released yesterday by the Justice For The Forgotten group they accused the taoiseach of ignoring their pleas for inquiries but backing those in Northern Ireland.

"As victims of unsolved murders in this state related to the Northern Ireland conflict, we welcomed the taoiseach's recent call for an independent public inquiry into the murder of Portadown man, Robert Hamill.

"We welcome his support for the Bloody Sunday inquiry and his call for inquiries into the murders of human rights lawyers Pat Finucane and Rosemary Nelson," the statement read.

"However, their calls for public inquiries into atrocities committed outside this jurisdiction ring rather hollow when compared with their continued reluctance to hold public inquiries in this jurisdiction into the murder of our loved ones who died in equally tragic and controversial circumstances."

Last night Jimmy Sharkey, the nephew of loyalist murder victim Seamus Ludlow, revealed the family has stepped up its campaign for an independent probe.
