Ingram’s comment on ‘self regulation’ encapsulates the government’s covert policy re paramilitary criminality. I have said this over and over, this policy led to Robert’s murder, (who wasn’t a member of any group, ‘self regulation’?) and that of dozens of men.
Spotlight confirmed what I and others already knew but our voices didn’t fit the message and were ignored. My hope is that the families will get proof that their loved ones were denied a proper investigation and potentially, protection of life guaranteed by Article 2 [of the Human Rights Act].
A lot of Twitter comment was dismissive of claims made by Logan around the IRA’s continued gun running at a time it was negotiating decommissioning of the weapons it had.
But it may be the allegations of state collusion in murders undertaken in the Peace Process™ era that prove to be the most damaging.
