THE Donaldson family – who are as much a victim of circumstance as anyone in this whole sorry affair – have released a statement. Although they do not know who was responsible for Denis’ murder, they say the difficult situation which they had been put in was “the direct result” of the activities of the Special Branch and British Intelligence agencies. They also say they don’t believe the IRA was responsible for the murder, and ask for privacy. “We would ask those politicians and media commentators who have sought to use this tragedy to score cheap political points to stop doing so,” the statement added, pointing the finger at sections of the media for revealing Denis’ whereabouts.
