Why aren't there more  IRA murder probes?


Perhaps Prof Kieran McEvoy (Comment, June 19) can explain how an amnesty for soldiers accused of inappropriate Troubles killings can possibly create difficulties for prosecuting IRA killers of the same period, when few (if any) such investigations appear to be going on.

Are there any current, or planned, investigations of IRA killings?

I'm sure the families of the many IRA murder victims or the many crippled survivors of various atrocities, of both communities here, would be very encouraged if the professor can let us all know specifically what those might be and what progress is being made.
