I am not sure if it's appropriate to comment on an on going trial. Surely we can wait until we get the result.

These two shinner provos have been in the courts again, this time the court was told how the IRA/Sinn Fein have been using the same torture methods as used by the Americans in Guantánamo Bay.

They subjected their victim to water boarding and threatened to remove his fingernails with a pliers at their home on the Navan Road.

They have links to terrorist Sinn Fein/IRA scum and also links to Dublin gangland figures who they have worked for in the past!

Utter scum!

Think that his defence is calling the monk as a character witness...

Some boyo - if anyone was ever in doubt about the shady background of SF, they should pay attention here.

Former SF councillor Dowdall and his father have been formally charged with intent to falsely imprison Alexander Hurley at the Navan Road, on January 15th, 2015 at the SSC today. This replaces earlier charges from May.

This, one assumes, may well be the end of his political career.

It's a shame his trial will not be heard before a jury of his peers, as it should be - another one of these kangaroo courts.

It's perfectly fine to comment on an ongoing trial. The media does it all the time. What's to be avoided is publication of stuff which might be prejudicial to a fair trial.

In the absence of a jury, it would be quite difficult to pull that one off.

SF modus operandi will be in force here he will be either

1. disowned
2. subjected to an unfair and biased trial

and
3. SF/IRA will admit to no wrong doing, illegality, criminality or association to same

There is only evidence of one guy claiming things. Sure didn't the snooker player Alex Higgins once threaten to set the RA on Denis Taylor? It was a common expression among 'hard men'.

All i see is two individuals allegedly engaged in criminality with no links (apart from imagination's yield) to anyone else.

What if the tape was fixed, how is the defendant supposed to introduce an expert to demonstrate this in front of an open minded jury - when there is no jury. Just some judge who comes from a sociopolitical class that detests Republicanism.

This is why 'Jury of his peers' is so important. Those judges will never be peers of the people brought before them.
