Stakeknife inquiry must be independent of PSNI
Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has said that the families of Caroline Moreland and Joe Mulhern deserve an independent inquiry into the role of the British Secret Service and their agent ‘Stakeknife’ in their deaths.
Mr McCartney said,
‘The families of Caroline Moreland and Joe Mulhern have no confidence in an investigation lead by the PSNI into the activities of British State agent ‘Stakeknife’ so they have taken their case to the High Court in order to secure an independent investigation.
“It is a known fact that British intelligence and RUC Special Branch personnel colluded with agents to commit murder with impunity so there is need for an independent investigative body to carry out any inquiry into the role of Stakeknife in the conflict.
“Sinn Féin support the action taken by the families today for an independent inquiry and will continue to support them in their search for the truth.”
