Sinn Fein Presidential candidate Martin McGuinness is the main suspect in the brutal murder of two policemen.
Sergeant Peter Gilgunn (26) and Constable David Montgomery (20), were gunned down in an IRA ambush as they travelled in an RUC patrol car in Derry. They were the first police officers to lose their lives in a terrorist incident in the city for 50 years.
The ambush 40 years ago came just three days before Bloody Sunday sent shockwaves right across the Province. But now a former RUC officer, who was in the car when the officers were killed, has revealed Northern Ireland’s Deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness is under the spotlight for his alleged involvement. The retired officer, who did not want to be named, said he was told by a member of the Historic Enquiries Team investigating the case that McGuinness is the main suspect.
The reason I am surprised is that McGuinness is suspected of direct involvement in TWO murders. I heard it was much more. During the final Presidential debate, McGuinness REFUSED to say that he believed that west Belfast woman Jean McConville was murdered. Instead he used the predictable Sinn Fein evasions. He is unfit to hold ANY elected position, in my view, and it is my view that the people of the Irish Republic will make that abundantly clear today.
