In the back streets of Belfast, Jonathan Evans, the new director-general of MI5, was known as ‘Bob’ to the agents who fed him crucial information that helped lead to the downfall of the IRA.

He cut his teeth in the murky world of bombings, kneecappings and disinformation, where a bad decision could cost the life of an agent or allow a terrorist bomb to reach its target. . . .

. . .  NOW this big fight over outing MI5 goons in a big public trial –

‘Bob’ to be subpoenaed in Fulton case

[snip] . . .  Fulton’s lawyers claim the security service promised him a pension and a new identity. He already has a number of FRU members who have pledged to give evidence corroborating his claims. Last December, the judge hearing the case in the High Court in Belfast ruled that Fulton could call any witness who can provide evidence as to his value as an undercover agent. The Observer understands Fulton’s solicitors will subpoena Evans after their client identified him in the newspapers last week, following the spy chief’s promotion.  . . .

” . . . .  And regarding ‘MI’s claims about the FRU saving Gerry Adams on several occasions, no one should believe a word of it.
Take the one about the doctored ammunition, for example, where 20 bullets were fired, and Adams was hit four times, as I recall. They penetrated the man’s body, and if the shooting had not been stopped, and Adams rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery, he would have died. Furthermore, the leading assassin John Gregg never mentioned any doubts about the ammo, only regret that he had not killed Adams.   . . . “
