INLA DECOMMISSIONING, LUNEDI’ L’ANNUNCIO
E’ atteso per lunedì l’annuncio dell’effettivo smantellamento degli armamenti dell’INLA
L’Irish National Liberation Army, stando alle fonti, dovrebbe annunciare ufficialmente lunedì 8 febbraio, l’effettiva distruzione del suo arsenale illegale di armi.
Il gruppo paramilitari si è macchiato di cruenti omicidi negli anni dei Troubles, tra cui l’assassinio del deputato conservatore Airey Neave (1979).
L’argomento ‘disarmo’ era già stato affrontato 4 mesi fa durante una commemorazione a Dublino, durante la quale l’INLA affermò la fine della propria lotta armata, ponendo fine a 35 anni di violenze in Irlanda del Nord.

Irish National Liberation Army decommissions its weapons (Belfast Telegraph)
The Irish National Liberation Army is poised to officially announce it has decommissioned its weapons, sources have claimed.
The group is expected to reveal on Monday that it has destroyed its illegal arsenal of weapons.
The splinter group was responsible for some of the most infamous attacks of the Troubles, including the killing of Conservative MP Airey Neave in 1979.
A republican source claimed the decommissioning happened in recent weeks.
“The announcement is expected on Monday,” he added.
Four months ago the INLA used a graveside oration outside Dublin to confirm its “armed struggle is over” and vowed to end its 35-year campaign of violence in Northern Ireland.
There was confusion however, regarding whether or not the group was prepared to decommission its illegal arsenal of weapons, after the statement read to supporters failed to promise a disposal of arms.
