REPUBLICAN NETWORK for UNITY (RNU) Ard Chomhairle member, CARL REILLY has criticised a sinister attempt to blackmail Ardoyne Republican, Martin Óg Meehan.

Mr. Reilly said; “Last Friday afternoon, senior RNU Activist Martin Óg Meehan was violently assaulted by the RUC/PSNI. This attack comes at a time when Republican Activists and their families have seen a significant increase in violent arrests, unwarranted raids and intimidation.
After being brutally forced into handcuffs and leg restraints, Martin Óg was taken to Antrim Road Barracks in Belfast. During which time, he was brought to an ‘interview room’ where two Special Branch men were awaiting. The Spooks ‘notified’ the former Political Prisoner that a Loyalist killer Gang had been actively tracking his movements for sometime.

The British Intelligence Agents alleged that they would end the targeting, if Mr. Meehan ‘helped’ jail three Belfast Republicans, whom they named. They further claimed that the North Belfast Republican would receive a ‘substantial financial reward’ if he agreed to ‘cooperate’. However, if he refused they would pass on his details to the gang”.

Mr. Reilly concluded; “It is no secret that British Crown Forces have directed the murderous activities of Loyalist paramilitaries for over a generation. The menacing threat to the RNU member shines a light on collusion between the rebranded RUC, MI5 and Loyalists.

The Republican Network for Unity reiterates our call to those Nationalist and Republican members of constabulary boards and district partnerships that their refusal to condemn abhorrent tactics is touted as approval for British repression and injustice”.

gas thing is, this type of blatent collusion would get more coverage in ireland if it was goin on somewhere else. the whole collusion thing down through the years by journalists and the trendy liberal left was never highlighed enough i find down south in case they were labelled as being IRA supporteres. a shame. a crime to one is a crime to all.
