100 Years Motorman

Daniel Bradley has questions to ask about the suppression of important documents relating to British state killings in the North. Daniel Bradley is a justice campaigner in Derry.

My solicitor Richard Campbell says "its bizarre"and goes on to ask the question, what could be contained in this material that is so bad that it has to be locked away for a century? And he would be correct to ask this.


This government on the 10th July 1972 gave authority to their troops to do what they will with no consequences; That is clear after reading the minutes of this secret meeting which even mentions torture to seek information from prisoners. At that time the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland signed the agreement for the go ahead even for the changing of the "yellow card".

It is possible that the capture of my brother could be in this material as it shares, under the third file Ref No. WO305/4600. It is locked away for a hundred years and one must ask the question, who were the persons on the ground taking footage and still photographs? And did they take footage of my brother's capture and torture? Did they take footage of the brutal murder of Daniel Hegarty?

To be put away for a 100 years, that's the only possible reason. I am also aware that the British troops did the same thing on Bloody Sunday. When will the people of Northern Ireland waken up to facts. It took myself and the family of Daniel Hegarty, as well as the Bloody Sunday families over 40 years to get in to court. It took just two weeks for soldier J and 7 other soldiers to get a high court judgement to stop proceedings of prosecutions of soldiers as well as 25 thousand signatures. Where is the Justice.

Dan it is worth repeating what you say about the unabashed desparity in the equality of arms principle:

"It took myself and the family of Daniel Hegarty, as well as the Bloody Sunday families over 40 years to get in to court. It took just two weeks for soldier J and 7 other soldiers to get a high court judgement to stop proceedings of prosecutions of soldiers as well as 25 thousand signatures. Where is the Justice."

That comment captures the compasisons between years of soul destroying defeats and tribulations: rebuitted with no more than a flick of a wrist.
