Willie MacRae Inquiry campaign to receive boost from STV Programme
MacRae Inquiry Press Release
Issued: 8 November 2006

The campaign for a Public Inquiry into the mysterious death of Glasgow lawyer Willie MacRae is set to receive a boost from the broadcasting of the STV programme Unsolved on Thursday night.

For over 20 years friends and colleagues of Willie MacRae have publicly demanded a full inquiry into the suspicious circumstances in which MacRae was found dead in his car by the side of Loch Loyne on the morning of 6 April 1985

Now a spokesman for the MacRae Inquiry team says that he expects the screening of the Unsolved programme to give the campaign a definite boost by highlighting many of the unanswered questions surrounding the case.

The spokesman said:

"MacRae was a prominent advocate of Scottish independence and a strong opponent of Maggie Thatcher's plan to bury nuclear waste in Scotland.

"The news that this programme is been shown as these two issues again come to dominate the political agenda ahead of next year's Holyrood elections just goes to show the relevance of MacRae's political outlook and just why he was considered such an enemy of the British state.

"The idea that MacRae was killed by his political enemies in Whitehall is not as outlandish as some suggest. It is known that MacRae was under direct surveillance by British secret agents prior to his death.

"Thatcher's government was up to its neck in political repression and surveillance of its opponents. This was the same regime which was to sanction collusion with loyalist paramilitaries to murder the Irish lawyer Pat Finucane.

"As if further evidence of the activities of British 'Secret State' activities were needed, then just this week an international panel of legal experts concluded a report that members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary and British Army colluded with loyalist paramilitaries in 74 murders in the 1970s."

"After 20 years the demand for a full public inquiry into the death of Willie MacRae has not abated and we in the MacRae Inquiry team will keep up the fight to these ends."
