In America an appeal is taking place to decide weather or not some taped interviews should be released which implicate a man in murder..
The tapes are the property of Boston Collage and implicate Sinn Fein MP Jerry Adams in the 1972 murder of an Irish woman, a mother of 10 who was thought by the IRA to be a spy ( later proved to be false)..
Mr Adams always claimed he was just a politician for Sinn Fien and not the IRA ..
At first a judge ruled that the tapes should be released because they are key to a murder trial , but an appeal has been lodged to stop the release. Some people think that the peace process would be shattered if the tapes are handed over to police in Northern Ireland..
Other people think that if Jerry Adams is named as the person who ordered the murder of Jean McConville and possibly other people then he should stand trial just as any other murderer would..
What do you think…Is it worth the risk of setting off a powder keg of past emotions and hatred or should it be left in the past? ..
Does this mean that if a murderer can make him or herself important enough that they gain immunity from trial?
Does it send a message to all those who lost loved ones or were themselves hurt that their lives mean less that the political career of one man??
I think no matter what happens there are going to be people who feel they have been wronged..This wont pass without someone somewhere being hurt or emotionally damaged by it.
I know what Id like to see happen with several people and not just Jerry Adams but I know that wont happen..
Whats your view on this?
