The Irish Sunday Mirror, 11 September 2005:

Our Man in the House

Publish or be damned

The Taoiseach is under pressure to publish a report on a suspected UVF murder of Dundalk man Seamus Ludlow in 1976.

The report followed a lengthy investigation by Justice Henry Baron into a number of suspicious murders south of the Border in the mid-1970s.

Earlier this week a second inquest into the killing of Seamus Ludlow questioned the role, conduct and alleged reluctance of the gardai to fully investigate the murder.

Labour' Justice spokesman, Deputy Joe Costello, said: "We know that the Government received the report in March.

"Seven months later the report has not been published and there is still no indication as to when it will be referred to the Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Equality, Defence and Women's Rights.

"Evidence heard at the inquest this week into the death of Seamus Ludlow raised serious questions for both the British and Irish authorities.

"There must be no question of suppressing or delaying publication of the report because of any embarrassment that may be caused to certain individuals."

Seamus Ludlow was shot dead and his body dumped in a laneway after he unwittingly took a lift from four loyalists on the outskirts of Dundalk in 1976.

A spokesman for the Taoiseach said the report will be brought to the Government in the near future and will be published soon.
