Willie Frazer has died

Quote:
Victims campaigner Willie Frazer has died. He was 58.

He was the founder of Families Acting for Innocent Relatives (Fair), a group set up in 1998 to support victims of republican violence.

Mr Frazer stood down from the group in 2012 after its funding was frozen.

His father Bertie, a part-time member of the Ulster Defence Regiment, was killed in an IRA gun attack in 1975. He was one of several family members murdered by republicans.

Mr Frazer was also involved in the flag protests at Belfast City Hall after the council decided only to fly the union flag on designated days in 2012.

He faced several allegations of misspending cash given to his victims group with funding being withdrawn more than once. He dismissed the claims as political.

Couldn't stand the guys politics and thought he often poisened the debate the NI, founding extremist groups like the protestant coalition, but he was a victim of the troubles and clearly his views were affected by his father's murder and I don't wish his family any ill will. RIP.

Willie obviously had mental issues related to the troubles but he always said straight out what was on his mind, I always got a great laugh off his facebook rants, for humour alone he will be sadly missed.

A massive move forward for community relations......but he did raise some valid points about his fathers killing.....but went looking for answers off the wrong people imo

This head case dragged his community backwards



A protestant lad from a loyalist background was murdered by the UVF (as far as I remember) in Frazers area. Willy, far too concerned with keeping in with his UVF buddies, was of no assistance to the family and they had to go to the SF represenative for help.

It’s a shame Ali isn’t still around.

He would have wanted to go to the funeral.

I disagreed with almost everything Willie had to say.

I disagree with this thread equally, nothing good will come out of it. Leave the man alone now, it's only his people left to be hurt.

He is gone now having added nothing positive to society.

Doubt his idol Lizzie Windsor even knew who he was.
