23rd October 1971
Sean Ruddy was 19 years of age from Newry. He was shot dead along with Robert Anderson and Thomas James McLaughlin by British soldiers in Newry, Co. Down, on 24 October 1971.
The three men were shot in a premeditated, pre-planned shoot-to-kill operation by the British Army who secreted themselves on the roof of buildings overlooking the bank. The British Army claimed to have a tip off that the bank was to be bombed.
As the men approached the bank they were shot without warning by the British Army clearly using unreasonable and unnecessary force in the circumstances. Indeed if the British Army and the RUC had a tip off then they should have put into place an effective preventative operation that ensured arrests prior to any possible alleged actions that could have endangered lives, if there were to be a bomb. They totally failed in that regard acting contrary to international law enforcements and Article 2 of the ECHR. And of course there was no bomb. Like many situations where the British army and the RUC took life unnecessarily misinformation and lies were used to both distort the facts and justify the illegal action. Sections of the media, ironically relying on information provided by the British Army, reported this misinformation. Some of the relatives have always maintained that they were not about to rob the bank and have disputed this allegation citing that this was used as further cover up in an attempted to justify the killings when the bogus bomb story was eventually proved false.
