“that was perfectly understandable..”

There’s still some way to go in the trial of Ted Cunningham on charges of laundering money from the Northern Bank robbery but, in the meantime, here’s a revealing quote from a report of yesterday’s evidence.

[Det Sgt Gerry McCarthy] said he had asked Mr Cunningham to describe the man from whom he received money four times in January and February 2005, but that he did not pursue him about identifying the man as it was clear that Mr Cunningham “didn’t want to go down that route”.

“What we suspected we were dealing with was an IRA cell and if somebody was reluctant to give any information about that, that was perfectly understandable and he was not under any pressure in that regard,” he said.

    It would appear that the ‘Northern job’ is inconclusive. However the re-skilling of suspect candidates years on means that the merchants of terror have parked up the JCB for ‘smash & grab’and have entered a new ‘modus operandi’ Possibly training accountants up for ‘The Great Electronic Transfer’ or ‘Corporate Stalkers’.
    These white collar crooks have outdone there predecessors.

    “An sure a man gave me money ah I am not sure how much I thought he might be in the RA bejasus I can say no more”

    Wasn’t there a councillor involved in counting the magically appearing money? he would have to be a member of the ‘gangsters and banksters’ party, F.F. No, no, it’s coming back to me, he’s a member of S.F. How strange, the media probably brought him to the counting house.

    B.T.W. Any Bulgarians out there with bags of money you want rid of, give me a shout.
