Loadsabooze for Shell's cops

category mayo | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Thursday September 12, 2013 02:41author by Naoise - Shell to Sea Report this post to the editors

That's the spirit; "drive them into the sea."

Following recent articles in both The Observer and The Sunday Times newspapers about Shell's use of a sub-contractor to deliver van loads of booze to Belmullet police station, a further delivery awaited Shell's cops yesterday morning as they went into the monthly Belmullet District Court session.

It's now a calender month since the story of Shell booze for Shell's cops first appeared in The Observer and the following week in The Sunday Times. Not one legal move has issued from either Shell or the police in that time.

The above begs the question - how long does it take, when there is no challenge through the courts of law, for an allegation to become a generally accepted fact??

In case of difficulty reading the names on the booze table, they're John Gilligan (Chief Supt), Dermot Butler (Sgt) and James Gill (retired Rape Tape Sgt).

None of the above have lifted a finger in legal terms in any attempt to clear their names of allegations of bribery and corruption involving smuggled booze with a street value of 100,000.

Nowhere else in the country would a display such as yesterday's outside Belmullet District Court go without reaction from the cops - Belmullet cops were blase about the whole thing which can only indicate that THEY KNOW it happened and continue on regardless in the sure knowledge that Callinan or Shatter will do NOTHING about it.

That can only be seen as Callinan and Shatter giving tacit approval (nods and winks again) to the subversion of the state's police force by Shell.

The IRA obviously had the wrong strategy - instead of shooting them, they should have filled them to the gills with sh1tloads of cheap booze from across the border.
