Opening Pandora’s box…

THE Government is set to announce an expanded role for a police unit to investigate the unsolved murders – including 200 RUC officers – of the Troubles. It would seem that a combination of re-opening criminal investigations, inquiries and the possibility of a ‘Victim’s Forum’, with a possible role for a museum at the Maze Prison site, is how we intend to bring ‘closure’ to the conflict. A Truth and Reconciliation Commission now appears less likely than ever.
