Divis Sweeney BS: British Collusion. The North of Ireland. (176* d) RE: BS: British Collusion. The North of Ireland. 22 Dec 06


Keith, The Provisional IRA have apologised for the civilian deaths and injuries it caused during the campaign and offered its sincere apologies and condolences to the families.

The future will not be found in denying collective failures and mistakes or closing our minds and hearts to the plight of all of those who had been hurt. It will not be achieved by creating a hierarchy of victims in which some are deemed more or less worthy than others. That includes all of the victims of the conflict, combatants and non combatants.

I myself believe Sinn Fein is committed unequivocally to the search for freedom, justice and peace in Ireland.

I remain totally committed to the peace process and to dealing with the challenges and difficulties which this presents us with daily. This includes the acceptance of past mistakes by all sides and of the hurt and pain caused to others.

There is two sides to this Keith. As an example,on two occasions the British government were found guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment in European courts. the British government publicly admitted it and promised to refrain from all the violations the court found them guilty of. I can accept their willingness to correct this and sorry to use this as an example, not trying to stir the pot, just want you to see wrongs came in from all sides.
