Meeting with Victims Group on Injustices in Northern Ireland

At a meeting on 13th May with the Cross Party Group on Victims of Conflict, we discussed reports of Barrister Amal Clooney to take part in the case of the ‘hooded men’ and their grievances related to their alleged claim that they were held without trial and were tortured, following the 1971 introduction of internment in Northern Ireland. They claim that then British Prime Minister Ted Heath was aware of and condoned the use of torture on detainees.
We also discussed the evidence found in the 1972 foreign ministry memo that indicates Heath was also aware of the murders of Catholics by British soldiers. The note by Heath mentioned in the memo indicates in paragraph 7 that “[t]here is no question of an extension of the powers available to, or the rules of engagement which apply to any soldiers.”

Regulation of Receivers in Ireland

On the 6th May, I spoke in the Seanad about the need for the regulation of receivers within the banking system. Without regulation on the repossession of people’s property, banks will continue to operate in a thug-like manner and in their own best interests.
