Aontú Leader and Meath West TD Peadar Tóibín has urged the Taoiseach to ensure that Gardaí hand over all documents relating to the murders and crimes carried out by the British Military on the island of Ireland.
Deputy Tóibín says that Jon Boucher who is investigating a large number of murders as a result of British Collusion, indicated that his investigation team still requires relevant documentation from Gardaí.
That information pertains to the Dublin and Monaghan bombings and to other incidents where Irish citizens were killed. Deputy Tóibín highlighted how the Gardai have still not provided the necessary documents to Boucher's investigation team, despite requests being made well over a year ago.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he was not aware that documents were being withheld but would engage with his department to ensure that the commitment of the former Taoiseach Mícheál Martin on the matter was fulfilled.
Aontú have also successfully tabled the Commission of Investigation (Collusion of British State Forces) Bill 2022. This would see if passed a Commission of Investigation into British Collusion established in the south. It would be able to collect evidence in the south, in the north and abroad.
"It would also be able to include evidence that has been published by other state investigation bodies internationally into British Collusion. We will not rest until every citizen has access to truth and justice," he added.
