Boston College IRA records court edict expected in 2-3 months
The 1st US Circuit Court of Appeals held a hearing to decide if the records, made with the promise of they would remain secret until those interviewed died, should be given to NI police. Police are specifically interested in the 1972 murder case of one woman and who was involved with it. A US District Court judged ruled the college must turn over the interviews, specifically those of Dolours Price. Two men, one a former IRA member, and the other, an IRish journalist who directed the oral history project, filed a lawsuit challenging the District Court ruling. They believe IRA members will be harmed and it will ruin the NI oral history project. Who will talk if they can be found guilty?
So this will have an interesting effect on many things, international relations, police, murder investigations, former IRA members, donor agreements, and oral history projects.
