Irish Americans turn to Congresswoman Maloney for help on Human Trafficking Case of Irishman Richard Kerr, Victim of the Infamous Kincora school, Belfast.



Capitol Hill. Wednesday, May 26, 2021—Powerful Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) Chair of the House Oversight Committee, the main investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives, has been asked to help with a notorious Human Trafficking case.  The Congresswoman is also a long-time Congressional Friend of the Irish National Caucus, and a strong supporter of equality, justice, and peace in Ireland.

And, with particular relevancy for this case, Congresswoman is co-founder of the Human Trafficking Caucus.


The Irish National Caucus has launched a campaign to raise in the U.S. Congress the case of Richard Kerr, a victim of the infamous Kincora home for Protestant boys. The home was the scene of horrible sexual child abuse—and, worst still, believed by many to be a front for British intelligence gathering for purposes of blackmail and political leverage. In other words, yet another appalling example of State-sponsored violence, domination, injustice, and cover-up. But in this case, the victims and the targets were Protestants. Kincora was closed in 1980 but the pain and damage continue to this day.


Fr. Sean Mc Manus—President of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus said: “Donal Lavery, a writer, commentator, and trainee-accountant in Belfast contacted me and asked me if we could raise the Richard Kerr case as we raised the case of the other Protestant Belfast man, Raymond McCord, Jr. who was beaten to death in 1997 near Belfast by Protestant paramilitaries. Because some of those involved in the murder were British agents and police informers, the British Government covered up the crime—and still to this day covers up the crime. And, thus, Richard Kerr—now 60 and a U.S. Citizen — continues to be a victim of the British government. We have great hopes that Congresswoman Maloney and other Members of Congress will demand justice for Richard Kerr. Richard was trafficked from Belfast to Sligo, to London, to Rome, Vienna, and the United States. Now, surely he deserves all our help?”
