Claim that hundreds of deaths in North happened due to collusion

Nuala O’Loan says some paramilitaries recruited as informants were ‘serial killers’

The former Northern Ireland Police Ombudsman Baroness Nuala O’Loan has claimed that “hundreds and hundreds” of deaths happened in Northern Ireland as a result of security force collusion.

Baroness O’Loan said that some paramilitary informants recruited by the British army and the RUC were “serial killers”.

Her claims were disputed by the PSNI chief constable George Hamilton.

Baroness O’Loan made her allegations on Thursday night’s BBC Panoramaprogramme, Britain’s Secret Terror Deals, which examined the extent of security force collusion with republican and loyalist paramilitaries

She said that the police and British army allowed informers to commit crimes, up to and including murder, with “impunity”.
