Bloody Sunday: abductions

Soldier 027 continues to give evidence to Lord Saville. Sarah Brett reports:

“Raymond Muldoon and Francis Creagh claimed they were abducted from the Divis Flats area by paras in February 1972. QC for the families of the Bloody Sunday dead, Seamus Treacy, today queried: ‘it would appear Mr Muldoon and Mr Creagh were ill-treated by members of the Anti-Tank Platoon, they were then abducted and then dumped on the Shankill Road. It appears from their statement that when they were dumped on the Shankill, they were dumped outside a loyalist bar and they were identified by the soldiers as Catholics, thereby making them targets for paramilitaries’.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
