DELIGHTED FOR THE MEN AND THEIR FAMILIES.....!!!!!!! :P
Michael McGimpsy:"We are looking for their immediate arrest and for the Republic to hand them over to the Colombian authorities,” he said.
“Mr Ahern must facilitate by whatever means necessary their swift extradition, even if that means new legislation.
“If he does not, unionists in Northern Ireland will believe him to be complicit.
“These men are on-the-run terrorists, convicted of terrorism in a Colombian court.
“They are in the Republic of Ireland and given that there is supposed to be a global battle against terrorism, Bertie Ahern knows what he has to do.”
“It is surely no coincidence that the Colombia Three have arrived home after the events of the last fortnight emanating from the IRA statement,” the south Belfast MLA said.
“The Irish Government are unlikely to send them back as this move is likely to be part of the latest concession choreography to republicans.
“The Colombia Three are probably the first ’on the run’ to be given a pardon. Once again, despicable political expediency is replacing common sense and due process.”
Do they have nice tans? Did they bring back any pressies? Most importantly, how good WAS the birdwatching in South America?
I expect to hear the DUP (and probably McDowell) bluster about this, but the Mullah does presumably realise that he'd be the one exiled if he tries to extradite these three.
why did they need to publically announce they were back in ireland?
the irish state should honour the interpol warrants for their arrest.
As long as they remain "on message" vis a vis the peace process, they'll be fine. If not they'll get 5 years for membership based on the false passports, and a Garda's word.
Just 1 gram of cocaine destroys 4m2 of tropical rainforest. Give it up ya selfish b'stards.
