“one of these people will break ranks..”

Despite a number of arrests – “heavy-handed” and “politically motivated” according to Sinn Féin councillor, Brendan Curran, the Chairman of the local DPP – no-one has yet been charged with the murder of Paul Quinn. Today his parents met with Chief Constable Hugh Orde who had this to say.

Despite numerous arrests, no-one has ever been charged with his murder. “This will happen, it’s simply a question of time,” said Sir Hugh. “What we’re looking for now is someone, even someone who was involved in it, to step forward.” “Because rest assured at some stage in the future, one of these people will break ranks, and will talk to us, and the others will go down for a long period of time.”

Although, that assumes that the blindness is not endemic..
