IRA victims seek answers in Libya

BY ADAM KULA

newsdesk@newsletter.co.uk

A TRIO of men whose lives were changed by IRA violence are preparing to visit a north African jail in an attempt to uncover how Colonel Gaddafi’s regime armed the organisation. Willie Frazer, John Murray

and Jonathan Ganesh hope to fly to Libya before Christmas to interview former regime member Abdullah al-Senussi, who they believe was a key player in the late tyrant’s efforts to fuel the conflict in Northern Ireland. After Gaddafi was deposed, Mr al-Senussi was brought back to Libya to stand trial

for his involvement with the previous government, in which he was reportedly the head of intelligence. Now he looks set to face some of the victims of Gaddafi’s gun- running programme too. Willie Frazer, the long-time campaigner behind Families Acting for Innocent Relatives,

has lost a string of friends and family to the IRA – and believes some of the weapons used to kill them came from Libya. Channels of communication had been set up between him and anti-Gaddafi dissidents when he joined a protest led by Libyan exiles outside the UN in New York in 2009.
