English police overstep mark - again !
The 32 County Sovereignty Movement have condemned attempts by English police to gather information from School boy
Yesterday in the North West of England the son of a supporter of the 32CSM was subjected to a process that left him frightened and intimidated when he was interviewed for 90 minutes, on his first day back after the school holidays, about his father and the boys interest in Ireland.
The police officer told the young boy, in a clear attempt to intimidate “that he had researched him, and that he knew everything about him, so not to hide anything” the officer went on to tell the boy that he was going to ring his father, and took out a mobile phone. Seeking to give the impression that the father knew what was going on.
Then went on to ask the boy about his father’s car, movements, and general business, the young boy was also asked if he had an interest in Ireland.
Following the interview the police rang the boy’s father on his mobile and informed him what had just taken place. The police officer was asked how did he get the mobile number and was informed that the matter will be addressed through a solicitor and that he was outraged that his son had gone to school and subjected to this appalling experience.
The matter was reported to the family’s solicitor who took swift action to protect the young boy. The police officer left the school before the parents and solicitor arrived leaving the school to pick up the pieces.
The supporter told the 32CSM “the police special branch have subjected me to a sustained campaign of harassment and it appears they now wish to target my young son, solely based on my support for a United Ireland, such action should be condemned, the state are clearly seeking to use children as informers”
The 32 County Sovereignty Movement condemn the English police for this illegal approach which is in breach of child protection laws and we support this man in any actions he may take to protect himself and his family, it is clear there are no depths to which these people will not sink to further their own ends and agenda in Ireland.
This is but the latest example of abuse of authority and powers by an increasingly imperialist and colonial police and follows hot on the heels of recent events in Cornwall where Cornish activists have been exposed to repressive police actions.
