Call to publish in full Stevens Reports into collusion

14 December, 2006


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Truth issues Philip McGuigan said that the fact the British system today published in full John Stevens report into allegations of British Intelligence involvement in the death of the a British royal in Paris ten years ago set a clear precedent and he called for the immediate publication of Stevens two reports into collusion in the six counties.

Mr McGuigan said:

"John Stevens today published in full a lengthy report into the death in Paris ten years ago of a British royal amid allegations of the British Intelligence agency involvement.

"John Stevens has completed three separate inquiries into the involvement of British State agencies, including the Special Branch in the murder of citizens in the six counties. All but one of these reports have been completely suppressed while the one eventually published was heavily edited. At the launch of the last report Stevens did however publicly acknowledge that collusion happened.

"A clear precedent has been set today by the British State. They cannot have it both ways. They cannot simply decide to publish reports which support their position or vindicate their agencies. It is now time to publish in full the Stevens reports into British State murder here and for the policy of concealment and cover-up to end." ENDS
