Divis Sweeney BS: British Collusion. The North of Ireland. (176* d) RE: BS: British Collusion. The North of Ireland. 20 Dec 06

Peter, I have seen two letters from the office of the Historical Inquiries Team. For obvious reasons I can't state publicly the names of those who signed them (not that the names would mean anything to you anyway). Both signatures made my blood boil. I know both of them (not personally ) and without sounding paranoid it was like a kick in the teeth to know these two individuals are to be part of this team. Both well known home grown ex RUC. I cannot or will not be pulled into saying anything more about either of them or the contents of the two letters.

Regarding actions referred to here carried out by members of the Provisional IRA prior to the Good Friday Agreement,the British government will not be pursing them through the courts seeking custodial sentences. Legislation to drop prosecutions for offences committed before the signing of the Good Friday Agreement was introduced by the British Government.

These were agreed by the two governments during Weston Park talks. They agreed not to pursue the prosecutions of those involved in so called crimes committed before April 1998 (take that one up with your government).

The PIRA were not appointed Guardians of law and order whereas the British army and police were. That is the big big difference.
