I wish to respond to an article by Jim Cusack which appeared in the Belfast Telegraph on June 14.
Cusack's article, without a shred of evidence, attempted to link republicans to an alleged forging operation discovered by Gardai in Co Laois. In typical fashion, Jim Cusack's article is strong on innuendo and light on evidence. The article flies in the face of what has been said by the Gardai. There is no republican involvement in this matter. Anyone with any information regarding this, or any criminal activity, should bring that information to the Gardai.
