McCartney killing suspects 'go missing'

People wanted for questioning about the murder of Belfast man Robert McCartney have quit Northern Ireland, Chief Constable Hugh Orde confirmed today.

As Northern Ireland Secretary Paul Murphy demanded more from the IRA than the expulsion of three members over the pub brawl killing, it emerged that detectives would be liaising with gardaí in a bid to speak to those they believe could help the inquiry.

Mr Orde disclosed: “Unsurprisingly, a number of people go missing after that sort of crime.

“That’s nothing new to Northern Ireland and we are currently pursuing a number of people who are outside jurisdiction.”
