Signed Copy Of The Good Friday Agreement

Another item sold at the auction was a copy of the cover of the signed agreement. In addition to the number of signatories[note 1], Stefan Wolff cites the following similarities and differences between the issues dealt with in the two agreements:[28] The agreement called for the creation of an independent commission to review police rules in Northern Ireland, „including ways to promote broad community support“ for these agreements. The UK government has also pledged to carry out a „large-scale review“ of the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland. The Dublin auction house Whytes described the object as „a document of extreme scarcity and perhaps the only signed copy.“ The agreement contains a complex set of provisions in a number of areas, including: the proposal was sold at the same time as a cover memorandum issued by the independent president`s office entitled „Final Agreement.“ Dated April 10, 1998, it says in part: „This is in all likelihood our last memorandum for you. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your courtesy. It was a pleasure to work with you. The document was also signed by U.S. Senator George Mitchell, who played a historic role in mediating the agreement, with signatures collected by a member of the PUP delegation. The agreement was reached between the British and Irish governments as well as eight northern Ireland political parties or groups. Three were representative of unionism: the Ulster Unionist Party, which had led unionism in Ulster since the early 20th century, and two small parties linked to loyalist paramilitaries, the Progressive Unionist Party (linked to the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) and the Ulster Democratic Party (the political wing of the Ulster Defence Association (UDA). Two of them have been widely described as nationalists: the Social Democratic and Labour Party and Sinn Féin, the Republican party affiliated with the Provisional Republican Army. [4] [5] Apart from these rival traditions, there were two other assemblies, the Inter-Community Alliance Party and the Northern Ireland Women`s Coalition.

There was also the Labour coalition. U.S. Senator George J. Mitchell was sent by U.S. President Bill Clinton to chair the talks between parties and groups. [6] The document, an official copy of the final agreement that paved the way for peace in Northern Ireland, contains the signatures of George Mitchell, Harri Holkeri, Paul Murphy and John de Chastelain. The result of these referendums was a large majority in both parts of Ireland in favour of the agreement. In the Republic, 56% of the electorate voted, 94% of the vote voted in favour of the revision of the Constitution. The turnout was 81% in Northern Ireland, with 71% of the vote for the agreement. It was signed by Tony Blair, John Hume, Gerry Adams, Martin McGuinness, Marjorie „Mo“ Mowlam and Bertie Ahern. The details of the agreement are still being implemented, an equally exhausting task.

The draw also included a cover memorandum issued by the Office of Independent Chairs to „all participants,“ with the subject „final agreement“ and April 10, 1998. They may not be able to set a price for peace, but the current rate for a final draft Good Friday agreement in 1998 is 28,000 euros.
