We’ve heard a lot of hype in recent days about Ireland has discovered a news sense of morality as it embraces the redefinition of marriage. However it has other darker secrets lurking in the background…
“Victims campaigner Ann Travers has condemned the Irish Government for putting in place a scheme similar to the controversial on-the-runs (OTRs) letters which secretly gave assurances to IRA suspects they were safe from prosecution.
Some are understood to be the suspected killers of Lord Mountbatten in 1979 and British Ambassador Christopher Ewart-Biggs in 1976.
Official documents between the Irish and British Governments that have just come to light reveal Dublin was already running an informal scheme where suspects were promised they did not face arrest before the British scheme started.”
Quite the “rainbow” nation, providing comfort to on-the-run terrorists.
