The Lagan Valley MLA said, “This announcement will obviously be disappointing and painful for the families involved. Once again, justice will be denied.

The scale of Operation Kenova once again reiterates just how widespread the infiltration of the republican movement was by the security services. Whilst Scappaticci may have been the focus of this investigation, the IRA and the wider republican movement was riddled with informants and there will be many within its ranks who do not want the full truth to be seen.”
