The rain soaked villages of Northern Ireland draw our attention today as we focus on what is going on with the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland (PONI) the RUC (PSNI) and Nuala O’Loan, supposedly totally impartial head of the Daniel Morgan Independent Panel.
Sam Pollock looms large, his resignation showed some foresight, the link even alluded to the “good working relationship” between O’Loan and Dave Wood with Pollock. Wood, regular readers know, was a major figure in the attempted framing of Jonathan Rees and the Vian Brothers. Wood handled known paid police perjurer Derek G Haslam of Downham Market.
Pollock resigned over the debacle surrounding the Loughlinisland massacre and the RUC/PSNI cover up. This brings us to Wood and Chris Mahaffey.
Robert Hamill was murdered, and, as with Eddie Fullerton, there was police collusion in the killing of Rosemary Nelson, the Hamill family solicitor. Mahaffey, as with Wood, links to both O’Loan and the fitting up of Mr Rees, Garry Vian and Glenn Vian.
Mahaffey paid Derek Haslam.
