IRA murder victim Robert McCartney’s family today begged the driver of a mystery blue car to help end their year of torment and bring his killers to justice.
As police made a new appeal over the vehicle they believe was stopped at traffic lights near the scene of the Belfast city centre stabbing, the dead man’s sister Paula insisted the pain and trauma would not ease until the gang responsible were all caught.
On the first anniversary of the father-of-two’s killing, she said: “Our grieving process has been hindered by the fact that the people who took his life for no reason at all have not been held to account.
“We also believe if we had some closure by these people being brought to justice it would help in the grieving process of this family.
“We are practically begging people, please if they have any information at all, release it and put this family out of the misery they have been suffering for a year.
“The blue car is very significant. We would appeal directly to the person or persons in that car to please search their hearts and tell what they know.”
