    I don't see any particular reason why the ball not man rule should be ignored here as it appears to be by all posters on this thread.

    We all know there is no evidence against Garland, and we all know this is about Korea. As per usual, wannabe pseudo-revolutionaries are ending up on the side of reaction. Quelle surprise.
    Banks wouldn't change $100 notes in Dublin in 1995, I know this because I tried to change one in Ranelagh that I got sent over for my 21st. Why would there have been such limitations if it was only about Korea? The banks in the north had no such limitations but then Garland doesn't be up much.

    Could you give some more details Cáth, such as bank name etc just so we can be sure of the contextual background. Also, to everyone posting here, less of the personal baiting and nicknames etc: confine yourselves to facts, any more insults and the thread will be locked.

    who is the man in question and who has the balls?

    fact is given the state of US prisons no EU citizen should be extradited to the Us as it violates their human rights given the brutal regimes in their prisons, would we extradite to Burma?
    Legal teams should be using rape and death rates in USA prisons, violent assault frequencies etc also personal interference and intrusions on personal; space contra to good mental health ie multiple body checks and pat downs .....inhumane facilities not fit for any of our citizens who are protected by our constitution.

    Anyone know who the four sticks were who fled the country in the 80's when the printing operation here was rumbled by the gardai?

    The Garland extradition case was in the High Court today.


    In an affidavit to the court, Brenda Johnson, assistant US attorney, said: 'This case involved a long-standing and large-scale supernotes distribution network (the Garland organisation) based in the Republic of Ireland and headed by Sean Garland, a senior officer in the Irish Workers' Party.'

    Default Garland 'ringleader of forgery racket' - What does Gilmore think now?

    Authorities in the US have accused Sean Garland of being the ringleader of a massive forgery racket that distributed the top grade counterfeit 100 dollar bills.

    The former IRA leader is fighting his extradition to the US at the High Court in Dublin, which heard Mr Garland met a co-conspirator twice in Moscow with the fake cash.

    http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/...reaking55.html

    However, Garland and Eamon "stickie" Gilmore used to be comrades before Gilmore changed colours and went in with the Blueshirts.

    In December last year, Eamon was against any extradition - He’s an elderly man and I know that Ruairi Quinn and Joanna Tuffy have taken a strong stand and I support them on that," he said.

    Support for Seán Garland's anti-extradition campaign was pledged by the UNITE / SIPTU / TEEU union leaders at a side meeting at the recent ICTU conference in Killarney.

    The audio of the meeting can be listened to here.

    Last week in Dublin there was a public meeting last week in which TDs and Senators from across the political spectrum pledged their support. The meeting was reported in the Irish Times here.

    Funny how Labour was represented by Burton and Tuffy.
    Not by any of Garland's ex-comrades.

    From a representative of the party which endorsed and profitted from supplying information on Republicans to the crown forces decades before the provos that's rather ironic.

    Any word on them supporting Jimmy Bulger while 'shout out for geriatric organised crimelords' is en vogue?

    Oh God. Not Chris Hudson MBE.

    Are these people opposed to all extraditions to the USA? Will they be bringing all party legislation before the Dail revoking any current arrangements? Or is it just Garland's extradition they are opposed to?
