British Must Come Clean On Murder Policy

2 April, 2004


Sinn Féin National Chairperson Mitchel McLaughlin has challenged the British government to come clean on its policy of State sanctioned murder and tell us where the people who operate this policy are now.

Mr McLaughlin said:

"Yesterday Judge Cory in his report set out in very clear terms the different agencies of the British state which operated the policy of state sanctioned murder. The Cory cases are however only the tip of the iceberg.

"The involvement of the Special Branch, FRU and MI5 in the murder of citizens leads directly to Downing Street. These agencies and structures still exist. They are still operating and still controlling and manipulating the various unionist paramilitary organisations.

"The British government need to come clean on collusion. They need to spell out where the individuals who operate this policy now are. What role do these individuals have within the PSNI and the current policing structures. These are fundamental questions and cannot continue to be dodged by the British government." ENDS
