Hume: publish your evidence!

The Derry Journal backs John Hume’s parliamentary call last night for the PSNI to publish its evidence. Although in any other jurisdiction, the voicing of such suspicions by a chief constable would be seen as an unremarkable event, in the context of Northern Ireland, as we’ve seen in recent days, it has potentially huge political implications. We can expect the pressure to bring whatever provisional evidence out nito the increase in the days and weeks before the IMC has to make its judgement on the case.
