Due to the threat posed by organised crime Brian Sherry a former Garda detective would like to see methods brought in to deal with criminals in much the same way as republican paramilitaries were dealt with. He argues that a senior officer should be able to go into court and give evidence based on intelligence to put these criminals away.
The extent of the threat of organised crime today requires the state to use methods previously employed against republican paramilitaries.
