Speaking to Newry Times, Bradley stated, “Paisley unfortunately did not, as hoped, retract his allegations before Mr Reavey’s mother, Sadie, passed away in July last in her 90th year. “Many people, including the former Chief Constable of the RUC, Ronnie Flanagan, Commander Dave Cox of the HET, former Deputy First Minister Séamus Mallon, attested to the falseness of the allegations; yet Dr Paisley has continually refused to set the record straight. The SDLP MLA added, “All Mr Reavey and his family ask is that Dr Paisley do the right thing and retract these scurrilous allegations which have been an added hurt to that suffered by the family through the murder of their brothers at the hands of the Glenanne Gang.”
