    Sometimes you just have to laugh. Retired Super and self appointed Garda media spinner John O'Brien this morning on SOR quoted Shakespeare as saying that the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting the same result. He compounded this idiocy by later criticising 'Shakespearian solutions' to the problems. He obviously knows as much about literature as Danny Hely Rae knows about history.

    The Kinahan cartel has been "striking at will", leading officers to fear they have informers in the rival Hutch gang, or more sinister, in the gardaí.


    Senior detectives are known to be actively investigating possible links between the Kinahan crime cartel and a former garda, as the ongoing feud claimed its seventh victim yesterday.
    The ex-garda, who was involved in several serious crime investigations until his retirement, now associates with a relative of a key member of the killer gang.

    Details of the retired officer's suspected involvement with the Kinahan cartel emerged as pressure mounted on Garda management to keep a lid on the increasing violence.
    The former garda is suspected of assisting a Kinahan gang member to obtain a passport under a false name so that he could move back and forth to Spain without alerting gardaí

    The National Bureau of Criminal Investigation began probing the garda's association with the Kinahan gang when he was still serving
    Members of the Kinahan cartel who live in the same neighbourhood in the north inner-city as the Hutch clan are suspected of carrying out six of the seven murders in the feud so far.
    Any conclusion to the investigation, I wonder ?

    I'm going to merge threads we have discussing Kinahan and Hutchinson and drug supply.

    This article today by Jim Cusack which purports to be based on police sources sets out to portray the IRA and INLA as involved in drug importation and protection rackets involving drug dealers from COCAD times on to the present day. Any truth in this, or is it an attempt to incite some kind of war between former adherents of the IRA and INLA ?

    Another one for the 'couldn't make it up' file, methinks.

    THE son of a former government minister has been arrested by gardai investigating a multi-million euro drugs bust linked to the Kinahan cartel.

    The north Dublin man, who is in his early 40s, was arrested by the force's elite Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (DOCB) as part of a major probe into the activities of the notorious cartel.

    He was still being held in custody last night at Finglas Garda Station where he was questioned about his suspected role in the importation of vast amounts of drugs for the cartel.

    The university-educated company director is suspected of setting up a Leinster-based "front company" for the cartel.

    "This company is suspected of being set up as a cover for facilitating the importation of drugs by the cartel," a senior source revealed.

    The massive drugs seizure, which gardai have been investigating for a number of months, has already seen three men charged before the courts and more arrests are expected.

    The minister's son has no previous convictions but became a suspect in the investigation after a lengthy intelligence gathering exercise by specialist detectives.
    Crackdown

    His father was a high-profile and controversial politician who served in the Dail for a number of years.

    The former minister is not being investigated for links to the Kinahan cartel or the massive drugs bust.

    "This highly significant arrest is just the latest in the crackdown by gardai against the cartel," a senior source said last night.

    "This individual was not actually caught in possession of the drugs but is suspected of being central in the plot to bring the haul into the country," the source added.
