The anonymous donation of $60,000 (£47,191) has been given to the independent UK charity Crimestoppers.
In spite of numerous searches, three of 16 victims – known as the Disappeared – have not been found. They are Joe Lynskey, Columba McVeigh and Capt Robert Nairac. Mr McVeigh’s brother Oliver said the donation was “great news”. “Anything that helps the recovery process is very welcome,” he added.
Crimestoppers takes calls confidentially by telephone or accepts information through an anonymous online form. It says any information that it receives will be passed only to the Independent Commission for the Location of the Victims’ Remains (ICLVR). The ICLVR was set up to obtain information that may lead to where the bodies of the Disappeared are buried. Information it receives is strictly confidential and is not passed to other agencies or used in prosecutions.
