MI5 has abandoned me, says agent who infiltrated IRA

David Sanderson

Britain's security services have been accused of abandoning a secret agent who infiltrated the IRA and "saved countless lives" duringthe Troubles. Raymond Gilmour, who lives under an assumed name in southeast England, said that his MIS handlers had promised him 500,000, a new home, psychiatric support and a pension after his exposure as a "supergrass". He claims that he was provided with only a modest home and 600 a month for three years, and that his false identity does not stand up to scrutiny. He also claims to have suffered from alcoholism and post-traimiatic stress disorder, and that he has been left destitute. With the help of his MP, he is taking his case to the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, which examines complaints against the intelligence services. Mr GUmour, who said that he was 17 when he joined the Irish National Liberation Army in 1976 as an undercover agent before moving to the IRA in 1980, was the only witness in a trial of 35 IRA suspects from Londonderry,

which collapsed in 1984. The Lord Chief Justice described Mr Gilmour's evidence as "unworthy of belief. Mr Gilmour told the BBC this week that he had been "heartbroken and disgusted" by the judge's comments. "I knew I was telling the truth," he said. "I was told there were deals struck by RUC men behind the scenes that decisions had to be made that wouldn't be palatable for me, so I was going to be the fall guy. "I brought the INLA to their knees in Derry, 1 brought the IRA to their knees in Deny and I saved countless lives. If I'm being treated like this after so many years, what do you think people down the chain are being treated like? 1 am living on a knife edge because of my mental health, I have no financial stability, which I was promised I have nothing." Ian Paisley Jr, the Democratic Unionist MP, said that agents who had risked their lives in the "dirtiest war ever this side of Kosovo" deserved protection. The Northern Ireland Office said it did not comment on whether a particular individual had been an agent
