Ruc Raids on members of Republican Sinn Fein homes Clarification {RSF Armagh

Preas Ráitheas / Press Release

The Thomas Harte Cumann, would like to place on record that the raids carried out on it members home under the so-called Justice and Security Act by the armed wing of the British state uncovered nothing. Reports in the local ‘pro-establishment’ media of drugs being found are misleading lies. We in Republican Sinn Féin condemn both the raid on our members home and the attempts to link the alleged seizure of drugs to Republicans. Republican Sinn Féin have a clear record of standing up and voicing our concern about the drugs trade and have openly confronted those who ply this evil trade.

It is our understanding that a young lad from the Craigavon area who is not a member of our Movement was stopped in the Tullygally area during this large scale search operation and may have been arrested with a small amount of cannabis, this has nothing to do with Republican Sinn Féin and we condemn the local media in its attempt to try and establish a link between the two. It is in our belief that a state led attempt was aided by a local journalist to blacken the name of Republican Sinn Féin and the Republican Movement.

Let us be clear on this Republican Sinn Féin condemn those who partake in this type of activity, the sale and use of drugs is destroying our community and our young people.
