Man awards 100,000 euros in damages for murder of grandfather involving police informant

A man who witnessed his grandfather’s sectarian murder in an attack involving a protected police informer must be awarded £90,000 (€100,000) in damages, a Supreme Court judge ruled today.

Michael Monaghan Jr. got the payout in his claim against the Chief Constable for the loyalist paramilitary murder of Sean McParland in North Belfast nearly 30 years ago.
