Brits Didn't Cooperate-Oireachtas

The Oireachtas sub-committee investigating loyalist attacks in the Republic in the 1970s has condemned a lack of cooperation from the British authorities.

The condemnation is contained in a report published last night by the committee following hearings into two bombings that killed three people in Dublin in late 1972 and early 1973.
The report accused Britain of breaching its commitments under the Good Friday Agreement by failing to cooperate with investigations into the bombings and other loyalist attacks.

It also recommended that the Irish Government should take its case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg if the British fail to hold an inquiry into the atrocities.

I back the committee's views and it is high time that the British government delved into its murky past and exposed the truth in its dealings with loyalist paramilitaries.
Hopefully the British will do the right thing and hold an inquiry but if not,then the Irish Government must take the British to Court as the committee recommended.
Justice must be done.
