'Seamus killers are scot free'
The family of a murdered forestry worker have given up hope of his killers being brought to justice, it emerged yesterday.
Seamus Ludlow, 47, was abducted by loyalist paramilitaries in Co Louth and shot dead on May 2 1976.
Cops never quizzed the suspects identified by the Royal Ulster Constabulary 18 months later.
The Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice heard the family accepted that the killers would never be held responsible.
A judge's report named four suspects who were arrested in the North in 1998. But the DPP there decided there was too littlre evidence to preosecute.
The family now want an enquiry to discover why gardai hadn't been given permission to travel across the the border to question the suspects.
