25 November, 2008 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Sinn Féin Dáil Leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD has secured a debate on the adjournment of the Dáil on the shooting dead by the British Army of Aidan McAnespie at Aughnacloy in February 1988. Speaking in the Dáil today Deputy Ó Caoláin called for the publication of the report of Deputy Garda Commissioner Eugene Crowley on the shooting of Aidan McAnespie.

Deputy Ó Caoláin said, "The Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform must publish the report of Deputy Garda Commissioner Eugene Crowley on the shooting dead by the British Army of Aidan McAnespie at Aughnacloy on the Monaghan/Tyrone border on 21 February 1988, in light of the Report of the Historical Enquiries Team of the PSNI which has concluded that the version of the shooting given by the British soldier responsible was not credible." ENDS

This issue will be debated in the Dáil this evening at 10pm.
