O’Dowd calls on British Government to come clean over Craigavon murders

Sinn Fein MLA John O’Dowd has called on the British Government to come clean over the role of a suspected British agent in the murder of Katrina Rennie, Eileen Duffy and Brian Frizzel, in Craigavon in 1991.

The Upper Bann MLA said:

“Yesterday a Court found that UVF gunman and suspected British agent, Alan Oliver, murdered three civilians in a Craigavon shop in 1991.

“Shockingly, despite information submitted by another man involved in the attack which placed Alan Oliver as the gunman, no investigation file was ever submitted to the PPS for prosecution.

“It is clear that the lack of investigation into these murders is another brazen and disgraceful attempt by the British state to cover-up its dirty war in Ireland.

“The British Government must end their cover-ups and come clean on their involvement in countless killings in Ireland, both through state forces and agents.

“On behalf of Sinn Fein, I commend the work of these families and their legal representatives over the last three decades in pursuing the truth and justice.

“They deserve their day in court and confirmation that an order will be submitted holding Alan Oliver liable is a welcome step in the right direction.”
