Investigation on Glennane gang must be properly resourced and held without delay – Martin Kelly

Aontú Armagh representative Martin Kelly has called for the investigation on the shocking crimes of the Glenanne gang to happen in a timely manner, as well as being properly resourced.

Speaking today he said:

“The Court of Appeal today has ruled that a full, independent investigation into collusion between British security and the Glennane gang must be held.

“It’s vital that this investigation between the ties between the British Army, the RUC and loyalist paramilitaries is time scaled in order to afford the many families affected closure and the ability to move on with their lives.

“It is also crucial that the proper resources and funding for this investigation are made available. Collusion is not an allegation but a reality. Murder and mayhem were committed on a mass scale and with impunity.

“The British government has refused to hand over files relating to over 120 murders committed by the Glennane Gang. A comprehensive and far-reaching investigation is needed with full co-operation.

“No-one has been held accountable yet. Families have waited for too long for justice. This Court of Appeal ruling has offered some hope to those seeking the truth, but an investigation must be held without delay, with as much funding as is necessary.”

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
