IRA researchers at Boston College file suit against US govt
They argue US subpoenas are politically motivated and one sided
Speaking to the Globe Moloney said the suit complements the legal actions already taken by Boston College’s lawyers. Theirs is a more political argument.
In response to Moloney and McIntyre filing their own case Jack Dunn, a Boston College spokesman said “We obviously share the same goal in the outcome of this matter, but these filings, which we are just now reviewing, may not necessarily reflect the views of Boston College.”
Boston College has already handed over the interviews carried out by McIntyre with Hughes as the promise of confidentiality ran out in 2008 when he died. However Boston College lawyers say turning over the other interview would endanger the interviewees, the peace process in Northern Ireland and academic freedom.
At the beginning of the project in the 1990s the College had promised Irish republicans and British loyalists that their oral histories would not be released until they were dead.
As part of the project, which originated in the 1990s, Boston College promised Irish republican and British loyalist former combatants that their oral histories would not be released until their deaths. Prosecutors maintain the College has no authority to do so when a crime in involved.
