Call for Line to be Drawn Under North's Past

The North's Attorney General, John Larkin,  in a hugely significant but controversial statement, has called for an end to prosecutions in respect of all 'Troubles' related offences.

The 'Troubles' would be defined as the era prior to the Good Friday Agreement of 1998 and resulted in thousands of deaths.

Apart from strenuous opposition mounted by victims' groups an additional problem is how any proposed policy change might effect the Republic. The biggest single 'spillover' atrocity from the Northern political violence was the Dublin Monaghan bombings of May 1974 when more than thirty civilians lost their lives. 

Nobody had yet been made amenable and there are strong suspicions that British state security forces had some involvement in the attacks.
