Not very much information on this, but a real can of worms has possibly avoided its opening cermeony.
Northern Irelandís senior coroner is to face a High Court challenge over his decision to suspend inquests into a dozen controversial killings.
Mr Leckey announced the adjournments because of potential British national security concerns.The families of those killed in Ballymurphy in the immediate aftermath of the imposition of internment without trial in 1971 are also affected by this suspension and are considering their own legal challenge.Preliminary hearings into two of the deaths involved were due to get under way in Belfast yesterday: those of 11-year-old Francis Rowntree who was hit by a rubber bullet fired by a soldier in 1972, and the killing of Gerard Slane in 1988.
Slane, a 27-year-old father of three, was shot dead by the UDA at his west Belfast home. His killing sparked claims of collusion between loyalist paramilitaries and the British security forces.
