This afternoon’s judgement in Boston comes as no surprise. However we will appeal Judge Young’s decision, along with the rest of our case, which will be heard in the US Court of Appeals in March when we expect a much more positive outcome.
We would like to welcome Judge Young’s remark about the Belfast project: “I’ve read thousands of pages of the transcripts. This was a bona fide academic exercise of considerable intellectual merit.”
This is the answer to those of our critics in Ireland who have labelled the Belfast Project ‘an anti-Adams exercise’. They have not read the interviews, Judge Young has.
We would also like to thank our attorneys Eamonn Dornan and Jim Cotter for their sterling efforts on our behalf and also our many supporters here in Irish-America who have rallied to our cause. The fight goes on.
