Is this the officer whose body was never found?

A little more on BBC

BBC clicky thingy

A 57-old-man has been arrested by police investigating the murder of British Army Captain Robert Nairac 31 years ago.

Captain Nairac, an SAS-trained officer, was abducted in Jonesborough on 14 May, 1977. He was taken across the border and shot.

His body has never been found. His name only recently appeared on the list of the so-called Disappeared.

Police said the suspect was being questioned at Antrim police station.

Six people were convicted for their part in the killing of the army officer who was abducted when he visited a pub at Drumintee, south Armagh. He aroused suspicion when he sang rebel songs. He was seized during a struggle in the pub's car park and taken across the border to a field at Ravensdale, County Louth, where he was interrogated for over an hour and then shot dead. Five of those convicted were from Northern Ireland and one from the republic. But police believe three other members of the IRA gang were involved. It is understood two of them are now living in the United States.

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

Show respect PLEASE "Bloke is not an appropriate term to use" Officer would be better or even soldier. And you are, Regretfully, still part of the Union so Treason still applies. :eek:

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.

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

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

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.?
Spot on Private Pike. You may have to explain the meat grinder bit to quite a few, but it may be best left unsaid. I still dont understand how some people can do something like that.... Then profess to be Christians...

Lets not be coy about it...I think you mean this:

Saddam's 'people shredder', into which his son Qusay reportedly fed opponents of the Baathist regime. Claims that male prisoners were dropped into a machine 'designed for shredding plastic', before their minced remains were 'placed in plastic bags' so they could later be used as 'fish food'. The victims were dropped in feet first, so they could briefly behold their own mutilation before enduring an agonising death.

A just punishment for those murdering terrorist ba5tards that have got away with it cosseted in their protected lives for the last 30 years, using the torture implements of the terrorists on the terrorists...indeed an 'eye for an eye'

No Charlotte you're slightly off tangent here. Capt Nairac G.C was fed through an industrial meal grinder and his remains fed to the terrorist's pigs. I can only pray that he was dead before this happened. Also, he was 14 Int not SAS.
