CONTINUING REPUBLICAN CRIMINALITY AT THE DOORS OF STORMONT

The recent discussion around the devolution of policing and justice powers to the Assembly flies in the face of events on the ground. While many politicians and commentators appear willing to forget or ignore the reality of what is happening on our streets. In recent months we have exposing the ongoing criminality of Republicanism, the unwillingness of it leaders to move beyond mere words to definitive actions. The ongoing criminality which includes the disposal of stolen Northern Bank money, the smuggling and entire black market industries of the PIRA and the attendant violence and intimidation that underpins their evil empire continues.

While we have heard some hard-line New years messages from our politicians they have to date been unwilling to follow words with actions. To date the evil criminal empire of Sinn Fein/IRA is still being presided over by an illegal terrorist army council. We were told this would not occur it has, we were told action would be taken that has not occurred therefore as victims we demand action.

In recent weeks we have seen Republicans arrested and questioned with serious crime including attempted murder. Individuals close to the Stormont Shinners have been implicated in serious crime and we anticipate more revelations to follow. It is alarming if such individuals are involved with or employed by a party that now sits in government. Security Staff or drivers who have or may be arrested for serious crime carry with them the reputation of those who employed them. We demand to know how many of these people have previous criminal records and have they been vetted or security cleared? How many of them have been given personal protection weapons and other security measures.

Victims wonder is it now government policy to supply weapons to these individuals and protect them. The Quinn murder will when properly investigated expose Republican involvement right to the top. If politicians with full knowledge of the ongoing crime and terrorism proceed to devolve policing and justice powers we as victims will demand to know why. It would me madness to proceed with such a move and we would appeal to the police to address these matters urgently
