Private Eye believes Boston College subpoena is based on a false claim…

There’s lots to talk about today, not just because of the declaration of the Deputy First Minister to run the Aras… but also in spite of it… For instance, this week’s Private Eye has this interesting claim on the Boston College story:

The Eye has also learnt that the subpoenas are based on a false claim that one of the interviews with Price, published in the Sunday Life newspaper in February last year, was based on an interview with the Boston College project – suggesting it had already put recordings in the public domain. That is not true; and no doubt the college will hope that this fundamental flaw in the legal process could lead to the quashing of the subpoenas.
