IRA ‘su­per­grass’ found dead in Bri­tain

The Myanmar Times - - World -

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.
