Slab Murphy Arrested

#4
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams made a public statement in support of Murphy following the March 2006 raids. Under political and media pressure over allegations of the IRA's continued criminality in South Armagh, Adams said:
Tom Murphy is not a criminal. He's a good republican and I read his statement after the Manchester raids and I believe what he says and also and very importantly he is a key supporter of Sinn Féin's peace strategy and has been for a very long time.
He also said:
I want to deal with what is an effort to portray Tom Murphy as a criminal, as a bandit, as a gang boss, as someone who is exploiting the republican struggle for his own ends, as a multimillionaire. There is no evidence to support any of that.
And also:
He's a good republican . . . Tom Murphy was one of the supporters of this peace process.

My bold.
Slab obviously contributed greatly to Sinn Fein's tea swindle, so if he is found guilty, can we also charge Gerry Adams with handling stolen goods.

Either that or he's got a serious inefficient boiler!

Best laugh I've had in ages!

Good Republican=Has killed for his 'cause'. No doubt we can expect more c**p from Adams this time round on the arrest of his good friend. But hopefully Adams will still be in morning over the death of Martin Meehan over the weekend (Rot in Hell). It was however good that the Garda arrested Slab because the Irish Government don't listen to Sinn Fein as they have no power in the south and therefore they don't have to bow to any pressure from the likes of them.

A separate arrse thread on Meehan is here

So, the criminal assets bureau raided his farm and other properties (that he didn't own) and found underground laundering facilities, millions in euros and stirling, hundreds of thousands of fags and baccy pouches and Gerry I'm-A-Lying-Terrorist-cnut Adams says that he is a good republican who supports the peace process, and by the way, he's not a criminal either.

So, the Docklands bombing, the killing of Mountbatten, his grandson, the Dowager, the Warrenpoint ambush, all of which he was at the back of (allegedly) were really just peaceful gestures were they?

Importing bombs and weapons from Libya - just to keep the peace.

I wonder how many bodies his pigs ate?

The bloke is a cnut of the first order, and I sincerely hope that both he and Adams die of cancer, slowly.

Well, it brought down Al Capone in the end... :twisted:

Detectives from the Irish Republic's Criminal Assets Bureau have arrested the alleged former IRA chief of staff Thomas "Slab" Murphy at his home.

He complained of chest pains and was taken to hospital, but was discharged and will appear in court later.

Mr Murphy is due to face nine charges of failing to file tax returns under the Taxes Consolidation Act.

He lives on a farm close to the border at Ballybinaby, Hackballscross, in County Louth.

The bureau has been investigating his financial affairs for three years and has twice searched his home.

The Republic of Ireland's Criminal Assets Bureau was set up in 1996, and was the model for the UK's Assets Recovery Agency.

Detectives from the Criminal Assets Bureau have arrested the Co Louth based republican Thomas 'Slab' Murphy.

Mr Murphy who lost a libel action against The Sunday Times for describing him as an IRA leader was arrested in Dundalk at around 9.30pm last night in an operation that involved the Emergency Response Unit.

He was taken to Drogheda Garda Station and was due before Ardee District Court on alleged revenue offences later this morning.

However, he was moved by ambulance a short time later to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital after he complained of chest pains.

Mr Murphy was due to face nine charges of failing to file tax returns under the Taxes Consolidation Act but that appearance is now in doubt.

The Bureau has been investigating his financial affairs for the past three years and has twice searched his home in Ballybinaby along the border in Co Louth.

Truely a nast piece of work. Lets just hope that the assets recovered go to some of the familiies and freinds of the people of S Armagh that he has terrorised over the last few decades if not longer.

CAB have a good record in pursueing criminals, and generally making their (and familys) life a misery. If they are on Slabs case, he may not be left with much, especially if they are co-operating with the Assets Recovery in NI. Slab has got away with a lot because of his "cross-border" location.

Unfirtunately, he didn't suffer from 'chest pain' a lot earlier. I might not havespent so much time piss-wet and freezing around that neck o' the woods.

I understand 7.62mm to be quite painful...

Well, Tax evasion is what got Capone locked up. But maybe the tax laws are different south of the border.

How long before Adams and the others' financial affairs are scrutinised?

The place is deep underground (can't remember the name), is generally hotter than a hot tropical place on a stupendously hot day, with absolutely no chance of ever freezing, which is has, as it happens, the same likelyhood of going sub-zero as Adams and is misbegotten ilk have of being done for tax fraud. Under no circumstances will Labliar let their little project fall on its face through the application of the law.

Slab Murphy may have just got the 'kiss of death' off Adams, its known that Slabs funds also came at the expense of other IRA Battalions. I/E his mob robbed in areas not belonging to him.

Like the old mafia dons who treaded in other peoples areas, Murphy may be heading for a well deserved fall. Also need slotting for his Warrenpoint involvment.

If he has then we can expect to see reciprocal action - he knows quite a lot about bodies.
