Omagh - CCHQ

The truth about security force activity in the run up to and in the immediate aftermath of the Omagh Bomb in 1998 came under the focus of the BBC’s Panorma this week. The programme revealed that the bomber’s mobile phones might well have been under survelliance before and after the bombing. This information was not passed on to the RUC until days after the event and they have never had access to the post bombing tapes.

The programme raised so many questions that Gordon Brown was quick to order a review by Sir Peter Gibson, the Intelligence Services Commissioner.
