British government should come clean over killing of four IRA volunteers – Sinn Féin
August 2, 2012
Sinn Féin MLA Michelle O’Neill has supported the call by the families of four IRA Volunteers killed in County Tyrone in 1992, for the British government to come clean about their deaths.
IRA Volunteers Peter Clancy, Patrick Vincent, Sean O’Farrell and Barry O’Donnell were killed in a British Army shoot-to-kill ambush on 16th February 1992 at Clonoe, County Tyrone
The Mid-Ulster MLA said:
“The families today released a report called Ambush, Assassination & Impunity that examined material not seen before in relation to the ambush. The killing of the four IRA Volunteers was clearly avoidable and yet the British state deliberately went out to make sure their actions would end in the deaths of the volunteers.
“Sinn Féin support the families call for the British government to come clean about their shoot-to-kill policy which was obviously used on this occasion and we offer the families any assistance we can give in their struggle for truth and justice.”
