Relatives for Justice claim evidence of shoot-to-kill


Some families of people shot dead by the Army during the Troubles claim they have found evidence that soldiers were given a green light to shoot-to-kill.

Relatives for Justice said it has seen secret documents which proves the Army was given a virtual amnesty.

It said senior government and Army figures agreed the move during a meeting on 10 July 1972.

The MoD said the document appeared to be a note on discussions not decisions on matters of judicial accountability.
