Boston College Subpoena News - The Belfast Project was an oral history of Irish Republican and Loyalist paramilitaries gathered between 2001-2006 and archived in the Burns Library at Boston College. In 2010, the first interviews from the archive were published in the book Voices from the Grave, and featured in the documentary of the same name. These interviews, with former IRA leader Brendan Hughes and former UVF member David Ervine, were made public upon the death of the interviewees as per their agreement with Boston College. In March, 2011, the British Government contacted the U.S. Department of Justice to initiate proceedings which led to the issuing of a sealed subpoena for all materials relating to two interviews in the archive, those of Brendan Hughes and former IRA member Dolours Price. Dolours Price's interviews are still embargoed under the terms of agreement she has with the Burns Library. On 07 Jul 2012, a federal appeals court upheld a lower court's ruling ordering Boston College to turn over confidential materials from its Belfast Oral History Project on Northern Ireland, dealing a blow to researchers' efforts to honor their agreement of secrecy with former IRA members. This site provides updates to this ongoing subpoena threat.
