    Is this the officer whose body was never found?

    *edited, because calling an officer a bloke is treason. Last time i mention to a mucker that the OC is 'a good bloke'*

    There's hope that after all this time justice will be done. :)

    If this man is guilty then I hope they lock him up and throw away the key.

    After reading what this brave man went through, I sometimes think it's a pity we don't practice the 'eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth' form of justice. :x

    But will there be a high profile trial followed by instant release because it come under the scope of 'The Good Friday Agreement'?

    On the first point - if ther yanks can grab the Natwest 3, despite British Law and Habeas Corpus . . . .

    On the second point, they are probably being looked after in the states by 'the boys', or doing gardening jobs for the Kennedies . . .

    Personally, I don't hold much hope out of anything being done. This gobment will probably retrospectively release them under the Good Friday Agreement.

    I see we are a pair of old cynics Biped :wink:
  13. I know someone with a meat grinder if you want to do some eye for eye justice. Also, call me pedantic, but shouldn't it be Capt Nairac G.C.?

    Pardon my ignorance but why is 'bloke' so offensive, nay treasonous?
