Subject: RE: BS: Stakeknife - Is He?
From to-days Irish News, A Court action by Freddie Scappaticci, the Belfast man alleged to be the British Army spy Stakeknife, is likely to be heard next week.
He is applying for a judicial review of the minister`s review that he was not a British agent.
He is also seeking a declaration that the refusal to comment is in breach of the right to life and respect for private and family life, as enshrined in articles two and eight of the European Convention of Himan Rights.
His Lawyers will also submit that the minister`s refusal amounted to a failure to protect Mr Scappaticci`s life and that the Minister Jane Kennedy, failed to give adequate weight to a threat to his life that would result from a rigid adherence to government policy. Ard Mhacha.
