There has been no justice for those burnt alive by PIRA

Those who are clamouring for PSNI investigations and prosecutions over the bonfire burning of a coffin with the image of terrorist McGuinness on it would do well to remember that it was under his and others’ leadership that Sinn Fein/PIRA burned 12 innocents to death in a Belfast restaurant during the so-called “armed struggle”.

The relatives of those killed in that war crime have had no justice.

The PSNI seem to have closed the case and it is highly unlikely that prosecutors will direct them to reopen it.

Probably those involved have ‘comfort letters’ and ‘Queen’s Pardons’ and could well be amongst the SF/PIRA godfathers now demanding Equality, Integrity and Respect.

You couldn’t script it.
