word on the street on the Christina Quinn
murder December 5th 2002 -
Gards are now saying that a
"refugee" entered the Quinn
house(seen above in a quiet cul-de-sac)
at 5pm on the 5th Dec and murdered
Christina, but still no arrest!"
for one smell a rat!
smacks of the Garda accusations
surrounding Lawrence Murphy and the
infamous "Leinster Six" missing
and Lawrence Murphy
Garda have alleged on many occasions that
Murphy could have been responsible for
the abductions of the Leinster Six women
BUT they have never produced evidence to
Garda propaganda tactics seems to be to
create numerous spurious and deliberately
confusing false leads on missing persons
and murder cases, so that the public are
left in a head spin, not knowing what to
will the public begin to realise that it
is the Garda who are the criminals - the
enemy of the public!
accusations against the Garda are
breaking every week and it points
conclusively in the same dirtection!
GARDA ARE RUNNING ORGANISED CRIME IN THE
REPUBLIC OF IRELAND!
- At last; we
are now given figures for missing in
the Republic of ireland!
SINCE 1990 -
191 people have gone missing without
went missing in 2001!
NB: This means
- 191 people went missing - their bank
accounts have not been drawn upon - they
are not registering for state assistance
- they have not contacted their loved
ones and this would not be accepted
behaviour, according to their families!
the corrupt Garda and their
"covert" pals in several of the
organisations say, this is not normal
behaviour and if the statistics were
compared with , say pre 1985 statistics,
we would see a huge jump in the cases of
missing people - people going missing
without trace and
without good reason!
Look here :
the same "phenomenon" of
increased numbers of missing people since
the late 1980s has been taking place in
Marc Dutroux case - Belgium!
demand top politicians' phone records
Commissioner wants to uncover source of
'malicious' corruption tip-off to Howlin and
Gardai are insisting, against the advice of
the Director of Public Prosecutions, on
examining the telephone and fax records of
two senior politicians, Jim Higgins and
Brendan Howlin, in connection with alleged
garda corruption in Donegal. The politicians
have reacted angrily to this unprecedented
development. Labour's Mr Howlin said it was
"quite extraordinary" and Fine
Gael's Senator Higgins described it as a
"very serious issue".
Sunday Independent can reveal that in May
2001 the DPP was asked for advice in relation
to accessing the two men's telephone records.
advice was sought as part of a fourth
internal inquiry after Howlin and Higgins
alerted the then Minister for Justice, John
O'Donoghue, to information they had received
about alleged corruption.
is understood to have advised the Gardai not
to take such a step. But the Sunday
Independent has now learned that on October
23, Assistant Commissioner Fachtna Murphy was
still of the view that his request to examine
the telecommunications records was
"worthy of reconsideration".
move is of huge significance given that the
Dail embodies the democratic freedoms of the
State and its members are historically
afforded legal privilege of expression.
Morris inquiry, which is investigating
allegations of Garda corruption in Donegal,
is to hear evidence that Assistant
Commissioner Murphy sought advice as to
whether the records of Oireachtas members
could be examined.
yesterday said it was "quite
extraordinary" that gardai should seek
to examine the confidential records of a
member of the Dail. Senator Higgins said it
was an "extremely serious issue".
The internal Garda inquiry was carried out by
Assistant Commissioner Fachtna Murphy and two
senior detectives. The Sunday Independent has
learned that in an interim report last year,
the Assistant Commissioner revealed that he
had sought legal advice from the deputy
director of the Director of Public
Prosecutions' office as to whether or not he
could examine the fax and telephone records
of the two politicians.
Commissioner Murphy formed the view that the
information sent to the two Dail members was
done for 'malicious' reasons and was a
deliberate attempt to smear the reputations
of two senior gardai.
time, Deputy Howlin and Mr Higgins were
Labour and Fine Gael spokesmen on justice.
request as to whether or not the Gardai could
secretly examine the phone records of Dail
members was made in attempt to identify the
source of their information.
Commissioner Murphy formed the view that the
informant had committed an offence of either
wasting Garda time or attempting to pervert
the course of justice. The request to examine
the phone records was turned down on the
advice of the DPP although no reasons are
letter to Mr Barry Donoghue of the DPP on May
30, 2001, states: "Arising from the
investigation to date, it is firmly the view
of the Investigating Officers that the fax
document in question was drawn up for a
malicious purpose, as there is no evidence to
substantiate its contents.
matters alleged are extremely damaging to the
persons referred to in the document and the
motives of its author(s) must now be viewed
as being criminal in nature."
final report, completed only on October 23,
Assistant Commissioner Murphy said the DPP's
advice should be reconsidered.
Mr Howlin said: "At the time, I was
first interviewed by the guards about this, I
was asked about the source and I asked what
steps would be taken to find out the source.
I was told 'whatever steps were necessary'
would be taken to find out my sources.
told him (Assistant Commissioner Murphy) that
if I became aware he was interfering with my
telephone, I would seek the recall of the
Oireachtas to raise it as a matter of
privilege. It is quite extraordinary.
will be of the most profound effect in the
light of all the other issues raised by
members of Dail Eireann as a matter of
routine. Basically, it is a fundamental
assault on the right of members of the
Oireachtas to carry out their business of
being the people's eyes and ears.
come to us with the most sensitive issues.
They must be assured that we are in a
position to protect their privacy."
Higgins said: "It is an extremely
serious issue. I would be prepared to go to
the courts to defend the right of an
Oireachtas member to receive information
without having to account for its source. I
would regard any decision to allow access to
the telephone records of members of Dail
Eireann as a major intrusion into the affairs
of elected representatives.
Deputy Howlin and I received this
information, we did not put it in the public
domain. We brought it to the Minister for
Justice and had no way of judging the
veracity of the allegations therein. As far
as I am concerned, we are not in a position
to make known the sources of our information
to the Morris tribunal."
