McCord: Arrest Haddock

Sunday Life

04 June 2006

THE father of a UVF murder victim last night repeated calls for Special Branch agent Mark Haddock to be arrested in his hospital bed.

Raymond McCord, whose son Raymond jnr was battered to death almost nine years ago, wants Haddock charged in relation to a string of murders carried out by the Mount Vernon UVF since the early 1990s.

"I am calling on Hugh Orde to arrest Haddock in his hospital bed and charge him in relation to the murders that have been carried out by his gang."

And he called on the 108 members of the Assembly to back his calls for a full public inquiry into the role played by security forces informers in paramilitary murders.

Haddock is currently on bail awaiting the outcome of his trial for the attempted murder of pub doorman Trevor Gowdy.

He is also the subject of an upcoming report by the Police Ombudsman which is said to be damning in highlighting Haddock's activities while he was a Special Branch agent.
