Agent tells of Scappaticci interrogation

ANOTHER agent last night claimed that he came across Fred Scappaticci and was interrogated by him.

Kevin Fulton said in an interview with Ulster Television that after the failed attempt on the life of an officer in the Royal Ulster Constabulary he and a close relative "were interrogated by the IRA and the person that interrogated us was Fred Scappaticci.

"Fred Scappaticci worked with the internal security unit," he told the interviewer. "He'd been in Dundalk many times when I was in Dundalk.

"Fred Scappaticci was a member of the internal security unit for many years."

Mr Fulton denied leaking the identity of Stakeknife to the media.

However, he said that he knew personally of other agents who were working within the IRA clandestinely.
