PSNI execute warrant at Belfast social club

Police visited a Belfast social club suspected of continuing to trade without a license on Monday.

Officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force (PCTF) executed a warrant at a social club in the Heather Street area of Belfast.

The premises had previously been visited by the PCTF in February of this year, when a number of licence breaches were detected.

A restraining order, made under the Proceeds of Crime Act, was also served on the trustees of the club restraining realisable property held by them.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland, HM Revenue & Customs and the National Crime Agency have established the Paramilitary Crime Taskforce to tackle criminality linked to paramilitarism as part of the Executive’s action plan on tackling paramilitary activity, criminality and organised crime.

PSNI’s Head of Criminal Investigations Branch, Detective Chief Superintendent Tim Mairs, said: “This action demonstrates the strength of the three agencies working together as part of the Paramilitary Crime Task Force."
