IRA ‘supergrass’ found dead in Britain
AN informer who infiltrated the IRA for the British intelligence agency MI5 has been found dead in his flat in England, a report said. Raymond Gilmour, 55, was a “supergrass” witness in a 1984 case in which more than 30 members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) paramilitary group were arrested in his native Londonderry. The 55-year-old’s badly decomposed body was found at his home. Gilmour’s friend and fellow agent, Martin McGartland said, it is disgraceful that Gilmour died in these circumstances after years begging MI5 for financial and psychological help, only to have them turn their back on him.
