Daniel Bradley in his latest letter thinks Sinn Fein has questions to answer. Daniel Bradley is a Derry justice campaigner.
MI5 is seriously dangerous as I found out for myself in 1984. It has authority over the RUC as well as the government and they are fantastic blackmailers. If you show any weakness at all they will have you eating out of their hands.
In 1984 I printed a story about IRA informers and MI5, after taking me 12 years to investigate it. Then I gave it to the Journal. After that I was abducted by two members of the INLA and one Provisional. All 3 were informers. They hooded and handcuffed me, took me to Leafair and then let me go.
The next day I was arrested by the British army and taken to Fort George. Five hours later 2 MI5 agents interviewed me and told me that the INLA and the Provisional IRA were going to shoot me dead and that they would get me a safe house in England.
You see, I am not a coward. Like my 2 brothers I stood my ground and I told MI5 that I could look after myself as I was an ex. Irish army soldier. This is all documented, and at the present moment there is an investigation been carried out by the PSNI as I have lodged a complaint about being abducted by the British troops and MI5.
But the Sinn Fein leaders have questions to answer: were they blackmailed by MI5 to work for them and hadn't got the courage to stand up to them? Everybody needs the answer why the young volunteers who went against the peace process were killed under the "shoot to kill policy". We all well know that in the 1990's the UDA and the UVF were killed off as well.
The money that was stolen in the big bank raid by the Provisional IRA paid off a lot of people. So it is up everybody to stand together and find the right questions that need to be asked and then answered.
