The British Supreme Court ruled this week that the PSNI was wrong not to investigate allegations of torture against the hooded men 50 years ago. These men were selected for torture during internment in the North in 1971. Separately, the survivors of the Miami Showband murders are to receive at least £1.5 million in damages due to a decision in the Belfast High Court. Separately again, the Glenanne Gang member, Garfield Beattie, was returned to prison for threats against the Aontú deputy leader, Councillor Denise Mullen. Her father, Denis Mullen, was murdered by Beattie in her presence when she was four years old. Garfield Beattie stated that, “Every Catholic murdered in Armagh and Tyrone was by British Army weapons.” I have scanned the Government for any reference or statements on this in the last week and there are none. How can the leadership of a country not reference what is happening so seriously to its citizens on this island?
