RUC still targeting

Sinn Féin Councillor Gerry McHugh has raised the case of a young Enniskillen man who was approached by the RUC Special Branch to work as an informer.

The man, who has helped Sinn Féin during elections, was walking from his home when a well-dressed man came up to him. The man offered to clear up a motoring offence if the young man would ``help us out''. He refused but later a number of sinister phone calls were made to his house.

Gerry McHugh praised the young man for reporting the matter to Sinn Féin and contacting a solicitor. ``The RUC have not called a ceasefire. They are still up to their own tricks. One of the main items on the talks agenda must be the disbandment of this discredited force.''
