  • ACC Wilfred Monahan
  • RUC SB intelligence Collation Section (ICS)
  • RUC Source Unit
  • R/07, Detective Sergeant in the RUC Source Unit
  • R/10, Head of the Source Unit 1987-1989
  • R/11 successor to R-10
  • R/15
  • Brian Fitzsimons, the Deputy Head of Special Branch (DHSB) during the period 1987-89
  • Brigade Research Units
  • Field Intelligence Fund
  • A/01, Officer Commanding (OC) of the FRU's East Detachment (East Det FRU)

the same OC of East Det FRU was in place throughout most of the period

  • A/02 told him a UDA target, T/01, had moved address: "A/02 told me

I'd be wasting my time, T/01 had moved to Downpatrick and was no

longer living at Rutland St"

The above exchange was a clear admission by 'Geoff' that he would

assist Nelson at times by confirming that the targeting

information he had compiled was accurate.

7.73 The Stevens III team was able to identify 'Geoff' as A/02. He was Nelson's main handler during the period May 1987 to January 1988. A/02 subsequently admitted in his interview under caution on

5 July 2000 that he was indeed the person identified as 'Geoff'.

7.74 During an interview on 6 July 2000, A/02 denied that he had

ever actually used a phrase to the effect of "you don't have that

wrong there" to confirm Nelson's targeting information, and

claimed that he had been quoted out of context. He stated that he

would "under no circumstances … pass information to a source".[59]

  • Commanding Officer (CO) of the FRU, A/05
  • A/07
  • A/08 FRU Operations Officer
  • A/10 - Colour Sergeant - change in attitude
  • A/12 - Nelson co-handler

A/13 appeared actively to welcome it by commenting that A/13 confirmed to Nelson that Maskey "probably" used the car in question. A/15

  • A/16 prior to Nelson's trial.[15] That officer, now deceased, was a later successor to A/05 as the CO of the FRU.
  • ACOS G2 during the majority of the period in which Nelson acted as a FRU agent was General A/20. A/20 was ACOS G2 from November 1987 until September 1989, and acknowledged that he was regularly briefed by A/05 on FRU matters during this time. He outlined the reporting chain within the Army as follows:ACOS G2 reported to the CLF.
  • (Lt Col) A/24, who had provided legal advice to the Army in Northern Ireland during the relevant period
  • The CLF from November 1987 to September 1989 was Major General R J Hodges. In his statement to the Stevens I Investigation in 1990, Major General Hodges did recall A/05's briefing on loyalist paramilitaries.
  • The CLF reported to the GOC, who from June 1988 to August 1990 was General Sir John Waters. He stated in his 1993 statement to Stevens II that:
  • L/01
  • L/03, UDA military commander under L/28.
  • L/04, a member of the UVF,
  • L/05
  • L/09
  • L/10 UDA 'Brigadier', L/10
  • L/12
  • L/13, a member of the UVF.

  • l/37
  • L/38, who was based in County Fermanagh.
  • L/41 on behalf of L/13, a member of the UVF.
  • L/49 the UFF Commander

Assistant Secretary Political (ASP)

Within HQNI the Assistant Secretary Political (ASP), who is DCI's representative, is to be kept informed of the status of current sources on a regular basis. In addition, he is the Security Service's representative, responsible for the maintenance and safekeeping of all FRU source files." [75]

8.174 In addition to the DCI and ASP mentioned in the Directive, the Service had an officer working in HQNI known as the Deputy Assistant Secretary Political (DASP). DASP worked in the Army's All-Source Intelligence Cell, which was responsible for the collation and assessment of all Army intelligence.

  • G/02 - head of the Security Service agent-handling section, (probably F8) c.1987
  • G/03
  • Security Service officer G/07

T/01 T/02 T/03 T/06 T/12 T/14 T/16 T/21 T/23 T/24, whom he confirmed the UVF was targeting. T/25 T/26 T/28 and T/29 T/33 T/34 T/43 T/44, whom it appears that the UVF were "desperate to get"
