Gardaí get €70,000 worth of booze from Shell as a "gift"

Recommended Posts

Anybody who doubts that the Gardaí are a private security firm carrying out operations at the behest of rich paymasters needs to be made aware of the sweeteners delivered by Shell in Mayo. OSSL, an oil services company claims that it was charged with "greasing the palms" of interested parties on County Mayo's coastline. The company, managed by Desmond Kane from Glasgow and Neil Rooney from Belfast, insists that the services it carried out for Shell even ran to providing the police force with some €70,000 (£60,200) worth of alcohol soon after a major clash with protesters.

"The pattern was the same as the saga reached its reported nadir: the delivery, from Northern Ireland in an unmarked van, of alcohol worth €35,000 to the Garda station at Belmullet, where the policing operation was quartered at Christmas, 2007. Kane quotes a Supt John Gilligan as saying, while he was helping to unload the consignment of booze, "it's lucky these walls are high", lest the protesters caught a glimpse of what was going on."

Naturally, this massive scandal will be ignored by the Irish media.
