    Default Fuel Laundering...Part Duex

    More than 300 members of the PSNI, Garda, Revenue and Customs, the Irish Defence Forces and the British Army were involved in the raid, which centred on the suspected fuel laundering activities of the former IRA chief-of-staff.

    PSNI and Garda cooperated in dawn raids at about 20 addresses in the Republic and three in Crossmaglen.

    The DUP MP for North Antrim said: “For there to have been not one single arrest is a complete embarrassment.”

    In January, a leading investigator with HMRC made headlines when he made a similar complaint that, over the last 10 years, no one in the Province has been jailed for fuel smuggling.

    Fuel laundering and smuggling costs the governments on both sides of the border tens of millions annually.

    In Northern Ireland, the latest estimates from HMRC suggest the UK government lost about £70m in revenue in 2012.

    That is a lot of money, but considerably less than the estimates of about £250m back in 2006.

    In the Republic of Ireland, according to figures reported by a Dail committee that investigated the issue, the authorities lose about 150m euro each year.

    More than 14 tonnes of toxic waste have been removed from an industrial unit in south Armagh after the discovery of a diesel laundering plant.

    Customs and police officers searched the units in the Jonesborough area on Wednesday morning.

    They discovered large underground tanks being used to launder green diesel.

    The plant, capable of producing 25 million litres of illicit fuel, evading over £18m in taxes and duty a year, was dismantled.

    Customs experts have described a fuel laundering plant in south Armagh as the most sophisticated ever found in Northern Ireland.The complex plant -- capable of pumping out 16 million litres of illegal fuel each year -- was discovered near Crossmaglen.

    With the ever increasing, rip off prices of fuel..... I'm not surprised there are so many illegal fuel plants popping up around Ireland as a whole...I see one is in Jonesborough. Heh.... I have a good idea what that one was.

    But yea, we pay over 60% tax on fuel. I think the government should be the ones arrested instead.
