Smithwick Shines A Light Into Provo Secrets
Commenting on the ‘live intelligence’ evidence from the Smithwick Tribunal today, TUV Leader Jim Allister said it throws light on several key issues, including the IRA murder of Lord and Lady Gibson.
“Hitherto the murder of one of our most senior judges had been put down by some to a leak from a travel firm or a shipping company. Now we know there is intelligence, which ACC Harris described as "accurate and reliable", which directly links this double murder to information supplied from within the Garda to the Provos.
“This is a devastating piece of evidence in terms of the Dublin Government’s complicity, through its police, in IRA murder. If Judge Corey had been in possession of such compelling evidence then it’s inconceivable he would not have recommended a public inquiry into the Gibson murders. It doesn’t get much more serious than collusion to set up a senior judge of one state by terrorists aided in another.
“The revelations that what in the present tense ACC Harris described as “Sinn Fein/PIRA members” being alarmed at what Smithwick is unearthing are a telling insight into the continuing alignment of Sinn Fein and the IRA – which, clearly, hasn’t gone away, else the ACC would not be talking about ‘Sinn Fein/PIRA members’. It is clear from ACC Harris’ evidence that the interchangeability between two extant sides of the same coin continues.”
