HET report says 'soldiers watched as teen was killed'


www.bbc.co.uk

Undercover soldiers were watching as loyalists murdered a Catholic teenager in west Belfast, a report by the Historical Enquiries Team (HET) has found.

Damien Walsh, 17, was shot dead as he worked at a coal supply business in Twinbrook in 1993.

The HET said the security forces had been watching the Dairy Farm shopping centre because it had been frequented by IRA men and because they had information that bomb making materials were being stored there.

Another story of the security forces in Northern Ireland and their often shady operations.

My favourite part;

"They had radioed the police with details of the killers' getaway car, but got the make and model wrong."

Not the best guys to have on a stake out if they can't get simple details like this right. Particularly when you are in the business of terrorism prevention.


Surely they were on heightened alert given the nature of the work?

The Walsh family have requested a new investigation by the police ombudsman into how the RUC's initial investigation was carried out. This must be particularly difficult for this man's family to have to live through this tragedy again.
