PERQUISITA LA CASA DI UN MEMBRO DEL RNU

Carl Reilly, membro del Republican Network for Unity, ritenuto tra gli orchestratori del riot del 13 luglio ad Ardoyne

E’ stata perquisita dal PSNI l’abitazione di Carl Reilly a Belfast.
In quello che ha tutto l’aria di essere stato un atto intimidatorio ai danni di un repubblicano, la polizia ha sequestrato telefoni cellulari e materiale informatico.
Il mandato di perquisizione motivava la perquisizione per il reato di “incitamento alla sommossa”, in riferimento al riot che ha scosso Ardoyne nella notte del 13 luglio.
Carl Reilly in qualità di membro del Republican Network for Unity, ha affermato di esseresi trovato ad Ardoyne per partecipare ad una protesta pacifica in sostegno dei residenti di quella zona, ma la manifestazione è stata impedita dalle forze britanniche.
“Se l’investigatore che ha bussato alla mia porta si è preso la briga di visionare le riprese delle telecamere a circuito chiuso di quel giorno, avrà chiaramente visto me e altri membri del RNU nel tentativo di calmare i giovani e distoglierli dal pericolo”.
Carl Reilly ha anche rivelato di ricevuto offerte di denaro per diventare un informatore, subendo minacce al suo rifiuto. Ha provveduto ad informare i suoi avvocati delle intimidazioni di cui sia  lui che la sua famiglia sono oggetto.
L’uomo ha tenuto a ribadire di essere membro del RNU, ovvero di una legittima e pacifica organizzazione politica.

Police search at dissident’s home (The Irish News)
Police investigating last month’s riots in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast searched the home of a leading dissident republican yesterday.
Mobile phones and computer equipment were removed from the west Belfast home of Carl Reilly, a prominent member of the Republican Network for Unity (RNU).
A PSNI search warrant presented during the investigation states that Mr Reilly’s home was being searched because of “information received” in connection with the offence of “incitement to riot”.
Minutes of meetings of RNU, which has a number of high-profile members, were also confiscated by detectives investigating the disturbances in Ardoyne.
A former republican prisoner Mr Reilly has said the police search was part of a concerted campaign of harassment aimed at recruiting him as an informant.
“As a member of RNU I was in Ardoyne on July 13 to support residents and to take part in a peaceful protest that was prevented from taking place by the crown forces,” he said.
“If the detectives who called to my door had taken time to look at CCTV and television footage from the day it clearly shows myself and other members of RNU trying to calm young people and move them back out of harm’s way.
“This has been going on for some time and I have already contacted my solicitor in regard to the ongoing harassment from British intelligence against me and my family.
“I have been offered stupid amounts of money to become an informant and threatened that I would be set up and locked away if I didn’t cooperate and provide information.
“There is no doubt that they are capable of carrying out these threats as has been seen in the past.
“I am a member of RNU, a perfectly legitimate peaceful political organisation.
“I make no secret of that but this ongoing harassment of me and my family shows that nothing has changed when it comes to policing in the north.”
Dissident republicans have been accused of orchestrating the outbreak of violence in north Belfast on July 13 that coincided with a contentious Orange Order parade past Ardoyne shops.
Shots were fired at police from a dissident republican gunman.
The group calling itself Oglaigh na hEireann later claimed it was responsible for firing at police lines.
Police used water cannon and plastic baton rounds during the disturbances.
A human rights adviser is compiling a report and will look at how four juveniles were hit with baton rounds.
