    Well there are a few Irish confederations of free traders (known as gangs in the media) that fit the bill.

    Recent reports say Fat Freddie was being targeted, there have also been on going Spanish operations focused on Irish gangs that have not come to fruits yet so I would say this might be interesting.

    I am interested in Freddie since the day I saw him in TK Maxx trying on a jacket over his 70s US army flak jacket.

    An Irish man in his 50s was detained in the Malaga area with his two sons. He is believed to mastermind the drugs empire from his base on the Costa del Sol.

    Seems like Ireland is good at producing some kind of good businessmen, shame its not legit. Apparently the Spanish base is where a lot of our bankers hang out. Such a coincidence.

    According to Sky
    Christopher "Christy" Kinahan , 53, is said to be the network’s boss.

    He was arrested on the coast at Estepona at the £10m villa he has lived in for the past few years.

    Kinahan is thought to have been behind a bet-to-lose horse-racing scam in the UK in 2004, in which top jockey Kieren Fallon and others were eventually acquitted when an Old Bailey trial collapsed.
    also arrested was
    Irishman John Cunningham, considered to be Kinahan’s right-hand man.

    Cunningham has a previous conviction for the kidnap in 1986 of heiress Jennifer Guinness in Ireland. The principals are thought to have been under surveillance for a year or more, during which time they were overheard talking in code.

    They allegedly used "computers" for guns, "waiters" for weapons, "cars" for ecstasy and "leaves" for banknotes.

    It is a bit off topic but anyone following what is going on in Jamaica?



    Tivoli Gardens, Kingston has been turned into a war zone as police try to arrest Christopher "Dudus" Coke (apt name) to face drug and gun trafficking charges in New York.

    The Kinahan affair has the makings of the most interesting disruption of current players, it also puts Paul Williams idiocy into context with his endless nonesense about the "new boss".

    For years perhaps decades these associations have morphed and grown. Those implicated have links to Martin Cahill, John Gilligan, right through to two people the Spanish want to talk to Two men who the Spanish authorities are also anxious to interview are notorious Dublin criminal 'Fat' Freddie Thompson and his pal Gary Hutch (The Monks nephew).

    the threads of this and the paper trails may lead to interesting people beyond.

    the funds involved so far appear to be in the region of 700 million, but that would be not all the properties.

    There must also be caches of disposables eg diamonds somewhere and clean money that has gone through the dryer years back that is effectively traceless. http://www.herald.ie/world-news/ring...t-2198666.html
    There is a great deal of blood spilt in all this.

    Spain has frozen Fat Freddies assets.
