Top Secret: This presentation by Justice for the Forgotten and the PFC, using original documents released from the National archives in London will reveal a year-long internal debate in the lead up to internment, they reveal discussions around where internees should be held and how they should be rounded up. The files also show how the RUC special Branch was trained, the allegiances of intended internees (official or Provisional) and how the first swoop went ahead. intriguingly, the files also reveal an “arrest Policy for Protestants” and the eventual detainment of the first loyalists.
