British War is not over

Commenting on the ongoing controversy around the activities of FRU and other British Intelligence Agencies, Sinn Fein Vice President Pat Doherty said:

"The media reports at the weekend about an alleged agent all emanated from faceless elements within British Military Intelligence with all the resources of the British state behind them.  They were aimed at a named individual who has no such means to counter these allegations and who has since denied these allegations.

"These allegations, speculation and dis-information come on the back of the Stevens Inquiry and revelations >from the UVF and Michael Stone that loyalist death squads were manipulated and directed by FRU and the Special Branch.

"The activities of these faceless securocrats must be subjected to full scrutiny.  We need to see a full independent judicial inquiry into the activities of the Special Branch and British Military Intelligence.  Clearly the war is not over for British Intelligence Agencies.  Their activities continue unchanged."
