Speaking after revelations in the latest BBC Spotlight documentary that Billy Wright was an agent working for British State Agencies, Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney said:
“Revelations that Billy Wright was an agent working for British State Agencies will come as no surprise to the families of the victims of Wright and his gang.
“Billy Wright and his gang were responsible for numerous murders in the mid-Ulster area and throughout the north.
“It is obvious Billy Wright and the murder gang he led were controlled, directed and manipulated by British State Agencies.
“The families of the victims of Wright and his gang are entitled to the truth about the depths of this collusion.
“There has already been too much delay and too many efforts to cover up the truth around collusion. Collusion was a key instrument of Britain’s dirty war in Ireland.
“Sinn Féin will be raising the issue with the PSNI Chief Constable and the Police Ombudsman.”
