Special Branch sought prosecution after Bloody Sunday was published

Files discovered at the National Archives have revealed how an anti-terrorist unit investigated civil rights activists in Northern Ireland at the height of the riots and sought to charge them with criminal offences.

The files of the special department from 2./3. March 1972 shows Eamonn McCann and Bernadette McAliskey-Devlin (then MPs) being reported to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in London for alleged sedition – speeches inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch – and disregard for the court.
