US judge orders Boston College to hand over to prosecutors more IRA interview recordings
BOSTON (AP) ' A federal judge has ordered Boston College to turn over more interview transcripts and recordings of former Irish Republican Army members.
In a five-page ruling issued Friday, the judge ordered the college to turn over transcripts of seven interview subjects in an oral history project to U.S. prosecutors, who had subpoenaed them on behalf of British investigators.
British police requested the information for their investigation into the 1972 slaying of a Belfast woman.
The college says it's disappointed in the ruling and may appeal. It promised interview subjects anonymity until they died.
The judge last month ordered the college to turn over other interview transcripts and recordings.
A former IRA member and an Irish journalist have challenged the ruling, saying it puts lives in danger.
