Drugs link man is ex-policeman

However, Mr McQuillan pointed out that, until recently, an individual could not be referred to the ARA if there was an ongoing criminal investigation.

He added that a key crime people wanted the agency to concentrate on was drug dealing.

"In the loyalist community, drug dealing is run by the paramilitaries and it is generally run for personal gain by a large number of people.

"So there are a large number of targets there who are all making significant amounts of money," he said.

"If you go into the republican community, the PIRA, in general, do not do drugs, so you won't find large numbers, on the same sort of scale, of drug dealers in that community.

"The issue is that you have to judge this on the longer term."
What? So the turf wars and general unpleasantness around Queens were between the loyalists then?

I have news for you Mr. McQuillan, who do you thnk is behind the recreational drugs trade in the South , and a fair old chunk of it io the North?
