As David Vance points out the Sunday World story on Martin McGuinness is now moved to the Daily Telegraph, who appear to have had sight of the same document the Sunday World had. McGuinness is not named in the document, but former British spy handler ‘Martin Ingram’ claims that the code name J118 refers to him. So far it is simply one man’s accusation against another. But whatever it’s veracity, it will do McGuinness (one of Sinn Fein’s most able public players before the collapse of Stormont) no favours.
