Wickedness falsely justified

Sir -- Gerry Evans was abducted, murdered and secretly buried 31 years ago. Cardinal Brady said he was "brutally taken away by people taking it upon themselves to play God ... an act of appalling wickedness". A deed preceded, also in Co Louth, by the even more appalling act done to widowed mother of 10, Jean McConville.

Such human rights abuses remain falsely justified, even by some of those now purporting to engage only in "peaceful struggle". At the time, Co Louth was used as a support base for the "Provo war", liberating the North. Now, irony of ironies, the same area is used again -- as a bridgehead for democratically liberating the South!
