‘Bob’ to be subpoenaed in Fulton case

I had mentioned that the new head of MI5 has some locally relevant experience, and there’s an outside chance that we might hear some more about that. The Observer reports that Kevin Fulton lawyers are planning to call Jonathan ‘Bob’ Evans to testify in his case against the security service.

Fulton’s lawyers claim the security service promised him a pension and a new identity. He already has a number of FRU members who have pledged to give evidence corroborating his claims. Last December, the judge hearing the case in the High Court in Belfast ruled that Fulton could call any witness who can provide evidence as to his value as an undercover agent. The Observer understands Fulton’s solicitors will subpoena Evans after their client identified him in the newspapers last week, following the spy chief’s promotion.
