Refreshing to see this “Sunday Times” article as it does not allude to Ian “Walter Mitty” Hurst as Stakeknife’s handler.
The cover up extends from Mulhern to others such as Fullerton.
Hurst (Martin Ingram) never handled Scappaticci (who was Kerbstone in any case) nor Stakeknife. Rumours of Mulhern being a tout led to Mulhern being interrogated. Operation Kenova is deeply mired, it is notable that nothing is being done about Garda Siochana/Geisha Sayonara collusion in the assassination of Eddie Fullerton in County Donegal. Meanwhile Bolton based Hurst makes a lucrative living touting for the security services, Mossad and others. Nice property portfolio, St Nexans and Castelferro. Oh well, it takes attention away from his mortgage fraud in Carrick, County Tipperary.
