Securocrats must be brought under control by British government

4 August, 2003

Sinn Féin Vice President, West Tyrone MP Pat Doherty commenting on media allegations about the editor of the North Belfast News Sean Mag Uidhir has said:

"These allegations are the latest in what is a British securocrats strategy of misinformation aimed at damaging the republican constituency and undermining the peace process.

"Mr Mag Uidhir has categorically refuted these allegations.

"These allegations come from the same people who killed Pat Finucane, who armed the Loyalist death squads, who continue to target ands gather intelligence, who at the most sensitive points in the peace in the peace process maliciously brief and leak misinformation to create crises and bolter anti-agreement elements.

"This is part of a British securocrats agenda. These faceless and unaccountable agencies must be brought under control by the British government." ENDS
