The movie also highlights the’mistake murders’ of two Australian tourists by the IRA in Roermond (Netherlands).
The Dutch police did comprehend the killers, however the IRA wanted their release otherwise they wouldn’t sign the peace accord in 1994, which eventually led to the Good Friday Accord in 1998.
This of course to the dismay of the Australian families . They have tried ever since to seek justice as the murderers of their family members were allowed to walk free.
