David McKittrick: At last, final piece of peace process jigsaw
Published 15/06/2010 | 05:00
IN just 558 words 38 years ago, Britain's then Lord Chief Justice Lord Widgery did more to damage the country's reputation in Ireland than almost any other single act during the history of the troubles.
Today another British judge, Lord Saville, will take 5,000 pages and 10 volumes to undo that damage as his inquiry into the events of Bloody Sunday is finally published.
Publication of the Saville report is in many ways one of the last pieces of the peace process jigsaw put together with the Good Friday Agreement of 1998.
