Disgusted by Victims Forum appointments

Published 19/09/2016

I was disgusted to see that the Victims and Survivors Forum contains at least two people whose membership is an insult to innocent victims.

The first is Eibhlin Glenholmes, who was once sought on nine warrants, including one for murder, relating to the Provisional IRA campaign.

The other insensitive appointment is that of Shirley McMichael, the widow of a former leader of the UDA.

Both the IRA and UDA were responsible for hate-filled, gruesome murders and, indeed, there are indications that members of both organisations have been involved in murder in recent times.
