Various cases indicate British prepared to use dissident groups – Sinn Féin

21 October, 2010 - by Alex Maskey


Sinn Féin’s Alex Maskey MLA has said that the case of Anton Craig indicates clearly what the party has been saying for some considerable time regarding British Securocrats use and abuse of so called dissident organisations.

Speaking today Mr Maskey said;

“Recent court cases and various other judicial proceedings seem to show a worrying trend of MI5 agents, or indeed those suspected of being MI5 agents, acting as instigators in many of the actions carried out by these micro-groups.

Studying these cases it appears clear to us that the warnings we have been flagging up about the degree of infiltration in these groups is proving hugely dangerous.

We are seeking to discuss these matters with those members of the legal profession who are also raising these same concerns, as well as raising it directly with the Irish and British Governments.” CRÍOCH
