In the past twenty-four hours I have received information relating to the brutal murder of Paul Quinn. Today I have spoken to senior politicians who have themselves been briefed by the Chief Constable who were able to confirm the details I have been given. It also confirmed that the information I received could only have come from a senior Republican source.
Whilst it was not confirmed that the PIRA sanctioned the operation it is confirmed that those involved were senior members of the PIRA. They have used their position in the PIRA to carve out a vast criminal empire in South Armagh.
Two Republican godfathers had sons involved in the attack. They continue to trade on their Republican credentials and believe themselves to be untouchable. These facts prove Gerry Adamís assertion that Republicans were not involved to be a lie. Sinn Fein/IRA have on numerous occasions denied any organisation involvement in events such as the Northern Bank robbery and the McCartney murder and on each occasion they were proven to have lied.
Sinn Fein/IRA have been responsible for creating the mindset, for developing the organisational and criminal capacity and for lending ideological legitimacy which allows gangs of men to feel justified in killing to further their ends. Irrespective of who this young man was or what he may have done noone had the right to take his life.
We intend to pursue this and ensure that those responsible end up behind bars because we are sure those involved have killed before, and if allowed to continue will kill again.
