RUC to Raid Every Home in Drumbeg/Meadowbrook

category armagh | miscellaneous | press release author Tuesday March 17, 2009 00:41author by Richard Walsh - Republican Sinn Féinauthor email tiocfaidh at btinternet dot comauthor address c/- Teach Dáithí Ó Conaill, 223, Parnell Street, Dublin 1, Irelandauthor phone +44-7835 620 592 / +353-87 261 8603 Report this post to the editors

RSF has learnt that the RUC are intending to raid every address in the Drumbeg/Meadowbrook areas of Craigavon, Co. Armagh.

Republican Sinn Féin understands that the RUC are currently seeking what they have termed a “block warrant”, which would enable them to raid each and every home in the Drumbeg and Meadowbrook areas of Craigavon in County Armagh by the weekend. This follows countless raids being conducted over the course of the past number of days, including over thirty premises being raided on Monday, 16th March.

A spokesman said that this would inevitably be met with the resistance of the people of the area, adding that, as always, the youth of the area have shown remarkable courage when resisting the British forces of occupation. He also highlighted other RUC activities over the course of the past week:

“In one instance the person named on the search warrant had not resided at the address for nearly two decades", he said.

“One man was informed by the RUC of a threat to his life by an unnamed Loyalist death squad. Whilst delivering notification of the death threat, the British colonial police laughed incessantly about the situation.

“The number of people being detained is rising constantly, with two of these being held since last Tuesday. It has also emerged that one of the detainees was seriously assaulted by the RUC during the course of his arrest.

“We have also received reports of young women being searched along with their prams when coming into and out of estates in the area. This has become a regular occurence over the past couple of years when the area has been raided.”

Republican Sinn Féin urges the people of North Armagh to stand firm against the brutal repression currently being employed by Martin McGuinness and John O'Dowd's bedfellows in the RUC.
