COLLUSION IS NEVER AN ILLUSION…

The Loughinisland Massacre carried out by loyalists and protected by British Crown Forces. May they root in hell

The Loughinisland massacre took place on 18th June 1994 in the small village of Loughinisland, Co. Down. Members of the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), a loyalist paramilitary group, burst into a pub with assault rifles and fired on the customers, killing six civilians and wounding five. The pub was targeted because it was frequented mainly by Catholics, and was crowded with people watching the Republic of Ireland team playing in the 1994 FIFA World Cup. It is thus sometimes called the World Cup massacre. The attack was claimed as retaliation for the killing of three UVF members by the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA).

No Stone Unturned

Allegations persist that police (RUC/PSNI) double agents and or informers were linked to the massacre and that police protected those informers by destroying evidence and failing to carry out a proper investigation.

The scene

At the request of the victims’ families, the Police Ombudsman investigated the police. The Ombudsman concluded that there were major failings in the police investigation, but no evidence that police colluded with the UVF. However, the Ombudsman did not investigate the role of informers and the report was branded a whitewash. Ombudsman investigators demanded to be disassociated from the report because their original findings “were dramatically altered without reason”, and they believed key intelligence had been deliberately withheld from them. This led to the report being quashed, the Ombudsman being replaced and a new inquiry ordered.

And so we wait…
