Journal behind the Madeline McCann 8 Ball

May 27, 2009

Yesterday’s Derry Journal ‘revealed’ that convicted sex offender, Raymond Hewlett, used to live in Urris, Co. Donegal.The story was already widely reported over the weekend, including the Sunday Tribune, which mentioned the Dunaff link, the Mail and the Times. The Irish Independent shockingly describes how Hewlett is a suspect for the disappearance of young Mary Boyle, 6, who went missing in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal in 1977. Hewlett was working reportedly working in the county at the time.

Another English paedophile, Bob Howard, was the sole suspect for the murder of Arlene Arkinson from Castederg, who disappeared from Bundoran in 1994.

The movement patterns of such dangerous men demonstrates the need not only for an All Ireland Sex Offenders Register, called for by the SDLP in 2003, but surely this should be done at UK and Ireland level. This would be a useful project for the British Irish Council – and indeed for the EU. Another good reason to vote Yes to Lisbon next time.
