“That’s a cop-out..”

On Sunday, while some paraded, and others protested, the families of those abducted, murdered, and secretly buried by the Provisional IRA and others held a small service at Stormont. In the Northern Ireland Assembly today MLAs debated a motion calling on any individual or organisation with information to bring it forward. During the debate the DUP’s Nelson McCausland outlined his view of Gerry Adams’ role in the disappearances – “human rights violation[s]” for which immunity was sought, and granted, during The Process™ – a role which Adams denied [see below the fold]. Back in the Stormont Live studio SDLP MLA Dominic Bradley and Ann Morgan, sister of Seamus Ruddy, gave their views on the debate.
