IMC - echo chamber for the Securocrats

27 October, 2004


Commenting as the IMC are about to deliver to the British government their latest Report, Sinn Féin Vice President Pat Doherty said his party 'will continue to defend the Good Friday Agreement in the face of attempts to subvert it by securocrats through the vehicle of the IMC'.

Mr Doherty said:

"The IMC in their activities to date have proven the Sinn Féin argument that they are little more than the echo chamber for the securocrats and spooks who wish to see this process derailed. The information contained in these reports comes solely from the Special Branch, British Military Intelligence and MI5. We all know the anti-peace process and anti-Republican agenda that these faceless organisations pursue.

"The IMC operate completely outside the terms of the Good Friday Agreement and they have no credibility within the broad nationalist and republican community. Those pro-Agreement parties, including the SDLP, who pander to the IMC call into question their commitment to the terms and principles of that Agreement.

" Sinn Féin will continue to defend the Good Friday Agreement from attack by anti-Agreement unionism and also attempts to subvert it by the securocrats through the vehicle of the IMC." ENDS
