Call for Saville to intervene.

Update on PIRA9 from the Belfast Telegraph which reports that the police in Derry have not yet received a warrant for his arrest and that John Kelly, brother of one of those killed that day, has called the decision to impose a 3 month jail sentence “outrageous”.

    I don’t know all the facts, but I would like to know how the courts can justify jailing this man and not Martin McGuinness for, on the face of it, what appears to be the same thing.

  • Davros

    I think it’s because this chap won’t actually attend. If he went and stood up and said I have nothing to say to you, I don’t think he would have been in the same trouble. It’s disgraceful.

  • Belfast Gonzo

    Ah.

  • davidbrew

    jail Martin McGuinness!!? Are you mad? Marty could have done the Northern Bank heist live on Ant and Dec’s Saturday takeaway, and wouldn’t even have got a parking ticket.

  • Davros

    Do you think PIRA9 should have been sentenced to a jail term david ?

  • Davros

    Outrageous. Martin Doherty has been sent to jail.
    What a farce.

    What’s the point in spending 160 odd million on an enquiry if witnesses can refuse to co-operate despite being granted anonymity?

  • Davros

    Alex, if we set aside the point about the only person jailed in respect of all these deaths being a republican, what is so farcical is that the only person to have been punished is a minnow while big fish were let off. That’s unjust.
