Preas Ráiteas – Press Release
“A member of Sinn Féin Poblachtach in Derry was approached by Mi5 Agents yesterday during a RUC/PSNI stop and search.
The Mi5 agents asked him to inform on local republicans and in return they would arrange a house for him as well as helping him regain custody of his children. He refused and as they left £500 as well as a phone number was left on his car seat by a member of the RUC/PSNI. He contacted his solicitor today about the incident and shall be going to the police ombudsman as well as local papers over the weekend.
This is one of hundreds of cases of approaches on Irish Republicans by Mi5 agents across the Occupied Six Counties. The same Mi5 agents who are complicit in the cover up of state collision and other crimes committed by British forces over the last 40/50 years. Today they are allowed to freely operate across the Occupied Six Counties along with the RUC/PSNI who are supported by former republicans Provisional Sinn Féin.
We would advise anyone who has been approached to contact Sinn Féin Poblachtach and if possible record or photograph the incident.”
