Theresa Villiers said no one would be arrested unless new evidence came to light. That doesn”t wash with victims, what about the old evidence I asked. Anyway this is me presenting her with new evidence about an IRA on the run who was involved in Kingsmill so we want him arrested.
Following our campaign for justice, the attorney general has ordered the coroner to proceed with a new inquest. The inquest into the slaughter of ten Protestant work men at Kingsmill by the IRA will start on the 17th of Feb at the high court. The day will come when at lest some of these killer”s will be brought to justice. We will not stop until they are all exposed as killers.
On 5 January 1976, the textile workers were traveling home in rural County Armagh. Just after the van cleared the rise of a hill, there was a man standing in the road flashing a torch. The van stopped and 11 other IRA men, all armed, emerged from hedges around the road. The IRA asked their religions. There was only one Catholic left on the bus. He was identified and ordered away from his Protestant workmates and ran off. The IRA gunmen then opened fire. One man, Alan Black, survived despite being shot 18 times.
