The Supreme Court has again blocked Boston College from handing over tapes featuring interviews with convicted IRA car bomber Delours Price to the Northern Irish Police, the Boston Herald reports. This will be the last stay granted by the Supreme Court and will last until November 16th.

The high court has overturned a lower court’s ruling from last Wednesday that the college turn over tapes of Price to the Northern Irish authorities so that they could investigate the death of a Belfast woman in 1972 in which the IRA are prime suspects.

The interviews recorded between 2001 and 2006 feature Price and other IRA members talking about their IRA activities for the Belfast Project, a program put in place so journalists and historians can accurately study the troubles in Northern Ireland.

The stay is only temporary however and will be quashed by November 16th if there are no further appeals to the Supreme Court.
