25 May 2006. Name of John Hume deleted from http://cryptome.org/ira-names.htm in response to A who writes:
I view your site as a valuable source of information that is widely suppressed, frequently without any justification. For this reason I would praise you.
I live in the city of Derry aka londonderry in Northern Ireland. Today I was looking at this:
And I am not happy about some of the information contained in the file.
The 'IRA mebers list' seems to have been taken from a loyalist website and necessarily unreliable.
I would compare it to trusting a list of Black Panther members submitted by the KKK!
It names John Hume as an IRA member. To quote Wikipedia "he is the only person in history to have won the three biggest peace awards in the world, Nobel Peace Prize, Gandhi Peace Prize and the Martin Luther King Award."
I know for a fact he has no involvement with that organisation.
Why are you publishing this information that is utterly absurd and demonstrably false. It makes the whole site look dubious by association.
24 March 2005. Deleted name of Michael Posner in response to letter request. Excerpt:

The New Name of Lawyers Committee for Human Rights
333 Seventh Avenue
New York, NY 10001
March 22, 2005
I have recently seen a list of alleged sympathizers with the Irish Republican Army (IRA) posted on your website, www. cryptome.org. I was surprised and very disturbed to see my name included on that list. Neither I nor Human Rights First (formerly the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights) has any affiliation with the IRA. We condemn all violence directed against civilians and non-combatants and have not ties with or sympathy for the IRA or any other groups that target civilians or non-combatants to advance political aims. I strongly urge you to remove my name from your list as posted at www.cryptome.org/ira-names2.htm.
I noted with equal dismay that you have also included the names of several human rights advocates living in Northern Ireland or England on your list. This is potentially very dangerous. As you probably know, others branded this way in Northern Ireland have been targeted for harassment, and some have even been murdered. By including other human rights activists in your list, you may be putting their safety and well-being at risk. I strongly urge you to reconsider this project entirely. but it is very important that you review the list and remove the names of human rights activists on Northern Ireland and England from it.
18 March 2005. Deleted name of Nuala O'Loan in response to:
An e-mail and postal demand sent to Verio, Inc., Cryptome's ISP, by Tughans, Solicitors, Marlborough House, 30 Victoria Street, Belfast BT1 3GS, IE, dated 2 March 2005. Tughans e-mail: email@example.com. Verio received the posted version on March 17, 2005 and faxed it to us today. Excerpt:
"We have received instructions to act for Nuala O'Loan who is the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland. [Cryptome.org] contains a list of alleged supporters of the IRA and includes details of offenses allegedly perpetrated by a number of the individuals listed. The inclusion of our client's details on this list amounts to an allegation that she is a supporter of a prescribed terrorist organisation and that she may have been guilty of criminal offenses. The allegation is untrue and is entirely without foundation. It is clearly defamatory of our client and is seriously damaging to her personal and professional reputation."
5 March 2005. Deleted name of Eamon Stack, in response to this:
Please remove my name from the IRA membership list published by you, with immediate effect. I am not and have never been a member of the IRA. False accusations of membership of paramilitary organizations have resulted in people loosing their lives in many nations. Sadly this has also been true in my country. I ask you act responsibly and I insist that you remove my name from your list immediately,
17 February 2005. Deleted name of Gareth Peirce, lawyer, in response to this:
Gareth Peirce is the pre-eminent human rights lawyer in the UK, and she has acted for those wrongly convicted of IRA bomb attacks, and is involved with the British Guantanamo Bay and Belmarsh Islamic people being held without trial. Presumably her name will also appear on some alleged list of Al Quaeda sympathisers ?
She was portrayed by actress Emma Thompson in the Hollywood film "in the name of the Father"
The Prime Minister Tony Blair made a public apology to the "Guildford Four" on Wednesday 9th February 2005 - the "technicality" was that they did not do it !
16 February 2005. Deleted name of Clare Short , Member of Parliament, in response to protest. Deleted name of Jane Winter, Director, British-Irish Human Rights Watch, in response to protest.
28 January 2005. Thanks to A.
