The Address | Benghazi – Libya
LONDON – A cross-party group of members of parliament met with Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt last night to step up the campaign to secure compensation for victims the Irish Republican Army (IRA), Belfast Telegraph reported.
Democratic Unionist Party MP Ian Paisley said that “there is a continuing injustice which needs to be addressed for those who suffered at the hands of the IRA using Libyan weapons” without discussing the details of the meeting.
The late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi supplied arms and Semtex to the IRA in the 1970s during the Provisional Irish Republican Army campaign.
Families of the victims and Northern Ireland MPs have been seeking compensations without success so far.
