This will be interesting. Three men out of a ‘team’ of six arrested yesterday for hijacking a Vodka lorry are said to be supporters of the IRA and of the Peace Process. Either a case of mistaken identity or they have allowed themselves considerable lattitude in their interpretation of last summer’s directive from P O’Neill: “All Volunteers have been instructed to assist the development of purely political and democratic programmes through exclusively peaceful means. Volunteers must not engage in any other activities whatsoever”.
