[another] Warrant issued for Sean Garland

As I previously noted, Irish Worker’s Party President, Sean Garland, had no intention of appearing in court in Belfast today for an extradition hearing [to the US on counterfeiting charges].. and the court has subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest – the BBC have a more comprehensive report here. Since he’s currently at large in the Republic of Ireland that warrant potentially creates some political embarrassment.. unless cross-border co-operation comes into play..

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
