Political Policing Belfast
A few weeks ago while attending a protest organised by the BDS platform in Belfast, one of our members was singled out by British crown forces for some harassment.
An unfounded allegation of "criminal damage" was put to him before being offered a notebook interview. When our member refused this interview the cop became very flustered and lost for words, he eventually says that he will pass the details to the PPS to do with what they see fit. To date no formal charge has come of this.
This is just one of the examples of petty harassment faced by our members over the past few months and amounts to political policing. Others have included cars being followed, paypal and email accounts being closed and mortgage applications being tampered with.
As always we will be undeterred in our activism and this type of behaviour only serves to strengthen our resolve.
