Journalist’s killers named?
THE HUNT for the killers of Martin O'Hagan, the journalist shot dead in Lurgan, Northern Ireland, on 28 September 2001, may finally be ending. On 3 February one Neil Hyde, among those publicly accused of the killing, was sentenced to three years' jail for 48 admitted offences concerning the "Loyalist Volunteer Force" (LVF).
Judge Patrick Lynch QC told Hyde that if he had not agreed to identify the alleged culprits in Martin O'Hagan's murder and give evidence about the activities of the outlawed LVF, he would have been jailed for 18 years. Martin O'Hagan's work for the Sunday World included many exposÚs of the LVF and similar groups and, as Secretary of NUJ Belfast Branch, he was on his way home from a Branch meeting when shot.
