This is a massive story and will be hugely embarrassing to Sinn Féin. Why has it being buried in a completely unrelated thread?
Mr Ellis has offered no comment which quite frankly is not good enough. Actually, it's contemptible. If he's not a mass murderer (and I'm not saying he is, mods), then he needs to state so publicly and declare his intention to sue the British state and the Irish Independent.
Anything less and the people of Ireland and Dublin North West will be forced to draw their own appalling conclusions
