IRISH NATIONAL CAUCUS brings the Belfast Protestant Richard Kerr case to Capitol Hill

 

CAPITOL HILL. Wednesday, May 19, 2021— Just as it brought Belfast Protestant Raymond McCord, Jr. case to the United States Congress, the Irish National Caucus is bringing the case of Richard Kerr before Congress.

 

Richard Kerr, 60 years old—originally from Belfast but now living in Texas since 1988— claims he was abused by “very powerful people” with links to both the former Kincora Boys Home and to MI5/ British intelligence. Kincora was commonly regarded as a home for Protestant boys, and it was run by Protestants. It has also been claimed that the RUC knew about the abuse but was either unwilling or unable to stop it. And we all know too well the terrible evil caused if State or Church cover up the sexual abuse of children.

 

In 2017, Mr. Kerr was due to give evidence to the Historical Institutional Abuse (HIA) Inquiry in Belfast. But on the advice of his legal team, he withdrew from the Inquiry because key State documents were not made available to his legal team. However, Mr. Kerr has mounted a legal challenge against the findings of the Inquiry. After all, British courts and inquiries, in both England and Northern Ireland, are replete with wrong or corrupt rulings.

 

Fr. Sean McManus—President of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus—said: “We have almost a 50-year history of helping people from Northern Ireland raise their cases in the U.S. Congress. We, ourselves, are not investigators and do not have direct knowledge of incidents we may bring before Congress, but we believe victims of British Government injustice and mistreatment should be given a chance to tell their story to Members of Congress. That is part of our mission. We were proud and honored to help the Protestant Raymond McCord, Sr. to raise the 1997 murder of his son, Raymond, Jr. and we are proud and honored to help the Protestant Richard Kerr to raise his case. Ecumenism is at its best when Protestants and Catholics not only pray together for peace but also work for justice because peace is the fruit of justice and solidarity.”

 

Fr. McManus continued: “In 50 years, Raymond McCord, Sr. and Richard Kerr are the only two

Protestants activists/victims from Northern Ireland who have sought our help to raise their issue in the U.S. Congress. That is because Protestants/Unionists/Loyalists dare not break rank and challenge British Intelligence and the British Government because when they do, they are isolated and shunned by the Protestant establishment and power structure. And this is even more reason —apart from the intrinsic merit of their cases—why they should be supported by the Irish National Caucus and our Congressional Friends.”

 

Mr. Kerr was introduced to Fr. McManus by Donal Lavery of Belfast, a trainee accountant, and commentator who has been helping Mr. Kerr. He has done extensive research on the Kincora cover-up. John McMahon —attorney and businessman originally from Dublin but now living in Massachusetts —is also helping. Also on the team is Colin Wallace, former Senior Information Officer, Psychological Operations, Army HQ Northern Ireland,1971-1974. (He was Senior Information Officer 1973-1974).

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?”
