When will terrorists finally face justice?

I am sure that I am not alone in praying that, one day, we will see the families of Claudy, Teebane, Darkley, Kingsmills, La Mon, Bloody Friday and Enniskillen standing on the steps of the law courts letting the world know that they have convinced the director of the PPS to reopen their cases and go after the IRA godfathers and murderers.

Until that time, we can only sit and watch while a small number of cases get every resource they need to sue the State over alleged collusion, while the victims of IRA murder are deemed unworthy of justice.

Perhaps, when every soldier and police officer who served here has been arraigned and imprisoned, time and resources will be allocated to bring IRA killers to book.
