“On the 19 of December in Lurgan, Crown Force Police raided the home of a member of Sinn Féin Poblachtach, he was subsequently arrested under the Terrorism Act. Since this was reported our comrade who is also a serving member of the Ard Chomhairle has been released without charge.
His young son was in the home at the time and had to witness the horrifying ordeal. This comes as no surprise to Irish Republicans as traditionally the parliamentary police force the RUC/PSNI step up their harassment and intimidation in the lead up to Christmas.
It is a common occurrence that Republican homes are raided and Christmas presents taken for “examination” only to be returned months later smashed up.”
