he IRA leadership has also authorised our representative to engage with the IICD to complete the process to verifiably put its arms beyond use in a way which will further enhance public confidence and to conclude this as quickly as possible. We have invited two independent witnesses, from the Protestant and Catholic churches, to testify to this.not the words that were demanded back in 2004 and early this year. How will the DUP UUP respoded to this lack of photos. well
STATEMENT BY DUP LEADER DR IAN PAISLEY MP MLA Holding statement by Democratic Unionist Party Leader Dr Ian Paisley MP MLA: �The history of the past decade in Northern Ireland is littered with IRA statements which we were told were �historic�, �ground-breaking� and �seismic�. These same statements were followed by the IRA reverting to type and carrying out more of its horrific murders and squalid criminality. The unionist community feels no obligation to cheer the words of P O�Neill. We will judge the IRA�s bona fides over the next months and years based on its behaviour and activity. Even on the face of the statement, they have failed to explicitly declare an end to their multi-million pound criminal activity and have failed to provide the level of transparency that would be necessary to truly build confidence that the guns had gone in their entirety. This lack of transparency will prolong the period the community will need to make its assessment. We treat with contempt their attempt to glorify and justify their murder campaign and we will be evaluating the extent of the price paid by the Government and the consequences that will have for the political process."Two sentences jump out at me from that statement one
We will judge the IRA�s bona fides over the next months and years based on its behaviour and activity.Meaning that they intended this period of making sure the IRA are telling the truth will take years and it may also be an attempt to prolong it for as long as possible. and two
This lack of transparency will prolong the period the community will need to make its assessmentie we still want photos. Alot of positive comments however.
