Boylan hopes for Glenanne gang judicial review success

6 May, 2015 - by Cathal Boylan

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has said he hopes a judicial review into the failure of the Historical Enquiries Team to publish a report into murders carried out by the Glenanne gang will be successful. 

Speaking ahead of a judicial review in Belfast High Court tomorrow, Mr Boylan said; 

"The Historical Enquiries Team (HET) has failed to publish a full review into the actions of this murderous gang, which was made up of serving RUC, UDR, British army personnel and loyalists. 

"The Glenanne gang was responsible for more than 100 murders, mostly of nationalist civilians, in Armagh and Tyrone, as well as being involved in the Dublin and Monaghan bombings. 

"The British state has continually sought to deny and delay the truth about the role of its armed forces in running murder gangs during the conflict. 

"This continuous refusal to take responsibility for its actions is unacceptable and adds to the pain and suffering of the victims. 

"I hope this judicial review is successful tomorrow so that the families can get access to truth and justice."
