Was an earlier thread about this but it appears to have vanished.

Absolutely scandalous that the families are still waiting for some kind of justice more than 30 years on.

The cover up continues.

Until every last member of the Cabinet effectively involved at the time and afterwards, and every last high ranking Police official involved in proceedings at the time and afterwards, and (finally) every Judge involved in processing the case at the time and afterwards is dead, the truth will not be allowed to be released.

A cover-up though?

To my eyes it just seems like one of those ‘perfect storms’ of a sequence of events and coincidental errors, presided over by a group of slightly less than capable people, with really really tragic, horrible results.

With hindsight it would have been managed very differently I am sure.

It just seems slightly perverse making one man the scapegoat for the whole thing. Clearly, there was no criminal intent behind his actions.
Heyyyy!

Read the Phil Scraton book and see if your view changes.

Cover up at the time for sure but was the truth not presented at the trial?
