“The Derry Brigade of the Irish National Liberation Army can confirm that our volunteers were this week involved in an operation to smash a North-West based crime gang concerned with the supply and distribution of Class-A drugs. During this operation volunteers recovered a substantial amount of cocaine estimated to be worth thousands of pounds. These drugs were then handed in to a priest in St. Joseph’s parish in Galliagh last night.
“The Irish National Liberation Army view the sale and distribution of these dangerous and highly addictive drugs with serious concern and we take this opportunity to warn all others involved in this trade to come forward and make themselves available to any member of the Irish Republican Socialist Movement.
“The Irish National Liberation Army will not allow the working class people of this city to be used as cannon fodder by these criminals whose only concern is profit by whatever means available to them.”
As well as the action in Derry the Irish National Liberation Army in Strabane also disrupted a crime gang involved in the drugs trade. Another statement was received by the Irish Republican Socialist Party:
“A criminal gang operating in the North West was last night dismantled by a unit from the North-West Brigade of the Irish National Liberation Army and have been ordered to desist from all criminal activity or face a military response. This particular gang which is headed up by a well known career criminal have in the past been involved in robberies, house break-ins, assaults and have more recently moved in to the drugs trade. It came to our attention that this gang was selling drugs to children after the mother of a 15 year old school girl informed the Irish National Liberation Army that her daughter and friends of similar age were taking ecstasy tablets. Last night a number of these gang members were arrested by one of our units and confiscated almost one thousand suspected ecstasy tablets and were instructed to pass them on to Teach Na Failte representatives for destruction. Teach Na Failte have since handed these drugs over to the Drugs and Alcohol Awareness Project group in Strabane, in the presence of local press, for destruction. We would like to take this opportunity to warn those in the drug trade that they face a military response if they continue to target children in particular for drug use.”
An IRSP spokesperson responding to the latest developments congratulated the Irish National Liberation Army for their actions but cautioned that they are not a police force but will take action where necessary to protect working class communities from drugs and other forms of criminality.
