Bank robbery: work of former provos?

The Scotsman has a detailed outline of the heist. Most signficantly the speculation about the prime suspects shifts to former provisional IRA men, rather than the organisation itself. Though over on the Irish Independent and the Daily Telegraph continue to make no clear distinction.

    There are a number of contradictory pieces in the Independent, obviously ex showband manager Sam Smyth has not been talking to Tom Brady who passes for a security correspondent.

    The Daily Telegraph piece is a collectors item. It mentions the IRAs’ head of intelligence and intercepted communications. a re run of the Castlereagh story which also involved the IRAs’ head of intelligence and intercepted communications. Though the Telegraph adds the exotic mix of Paisleys’ son and Lowry. Honestly, you couldn’t make it up.

    Pat,

    I agree with you on this, the Daily Telegraph story looks like a bit of a retread.
