The settlement figure comprises the proceeds from the sale of a motorhome (£45,000), plus an additional amount of £15,000, all suspected of having been acquired through the proceeds of fraud offences and money.

Mawhinney has seven days from the date of the order to pay an initial £50,000, plus another six months to pay the remainder.

NCA Operations Manager Steven Brown said: Working as part of the PCTF we are determined to use all the tools at our disposal to target those impacting our communities through paramilitary crime: The NCA’s civil recovery and tax powers allow us to hit them in the pocket and strip away the assets they have obtained through their criminal activity: This result demonstrates that our financial investigators will find and recover the proceeds of crime, no matter how carefully they have been hidden.”

The NCA, Police Service of Northern Ireland and HM Revenue & Customs established the PCTF to tackle criminality linked to paramilitary activity as part of the Executive’s action plan on Tackling Paramilitary Activity, Criminality, and Organised Crime.

(BELFAST, N.I.) Royal Courts Of Appeal Justice Report: Following an appeal by 57 year old Francis Lanigan against his conviction and sentencing for the murder of John Knocker today the court upheld his original conviction and sentencing #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.02: Following an appeal by 57 year old Francis Lanigan against his conviction and sentencing for the murder of John Knocker which occurred on 31 May 1998, today, Tuesday 31st August 2021, at the Royal Courts of Justice, Belfast the Court of Appeal upheld his original conviction and sentencing. He was previously sentenced to a minimum term of 20 years imprisonment….

#AceDailyNews UPDATE: On the sentencing for the murder of John Knocker in 1998 of Francis Lanigan against his original conviction which was upheld in Royal Court of Justices …..

PSNI REPORT:

Detective Superintendent Gareth Talbot said: “John’s family and friends were able to observe today’s proceedings remotely and I would like to say that my thoughts and those of the investigation team are very much with them at what has been an extremely difficult time: John was murdered following an altercation with Francis Lanigan in the carpark of Glengannon hotel in Dungannon. Following this altercation, as John was fleeing along Eglish Road, Francis Lanigan raised a gun and callously shot him from a distance. He fell to the ground wounded and as he lay helpless and vulnerable on the ground Francis Lanigan walked up to him and coldly shot him a second time in the head, killing him.”

Detective Superintendent Talbot continues: “John was a young man of 22 when his life was ruthlessly cut short. He had a young son and was awaiting the birth of his second child: John and his son were denied the joy of building memories together. He never got to see the birth of his daughter and she will never have the joy of her father walking her down the aisle. Francis Lanigan’s actions have taken so much from his children and his family: Although this callous and brutal murder occurred 23 years ago and Francis Lanigan fled the jurisdiction to the Republic of Ireland, officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland worked tirelessly to bring him back to Northern Ireland to face justice for what he had done: He believed he could evade justice – he was wrong.”

Detective Superintendent Talbot concludes: “I would like to place on record my thanks to the family and friends of John Knocker who have supported the police investigation down through the years: I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the investigation team for their efforts and painstaking work which enabled us to bring Francis Lanigan before the courts: Today’s judgment won’t bring John back to his family, however I hope it will bring some small degree of comfort to them knowing that Francis Lanigan is in prison, paying the price for taking the life of their father, son and brother.”

Statement issued on behalf of Mary Knocker, mother of John Knocker: Today, Francis Lanigan’s conviction and sentence for the brutal and senseless murder of my beloved son, John was upheld by the Court of Appeal. However, no matter how many years he has to serve in prison it will not make up for the life and memories that both John and all of his family have missed out on and will continue to miss: John was my first born and my only son. He was the light of my life. His murder rocked our family to the core and left a huge void in our lives which will remain for as long as we all live: His younger sisters and I have had to live with the heartache of never being able to feel his arms hugging us or hearing his laughter. Family gatherings and holidays have never been the same without him. All of our memories are missing one vital person – John.

John had a young son whom he adored: He was looking forward to the birth of his second child. He had his whole life ahead of him. However, Francis Lanigan robbed both him and his children of the chance to make beautiful and life changing memories: John never got to meet his daughter as his life was cruelly cut short before she was born. He never had the chance to look into her eyes or hear her voice and she never got to meet her father: We have all been denied so much by the cruel and senseless act of one person: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the police, our legal team and not least of all my family and friends, whose help and support we all truly appreciate.

(BELFAST, N.I.) #Coronavirus Report: There are “frantic” ongoing efforts to resolve issues with #COVID19 vaccine certification system, the official in charge of it has said #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Aug.01: Dr Eddie O’Neill, from the Department of Health, said staff worked on the problems until 05:00 BST on Friday…..

#CoronavirusNewsDesk – ‘Frantic’ efforts to fix NI COVID19 passport system after Paper vaccine certificates have been available since May, and on 25 June, the digital NHS Covid Pass became available for “urgent travel” only and the system, which was temporarily suspended on Tuesday, did not resume as planned on Friday morning.

CovidCertNI app
The CovidCertNI allows people to show they have had two doses of a vaccine if they travel abroad

It was hoped it would be back up by the afternoon, but as of Saturday morning the service was still unavailable.

However, users were being prompted to register for an nidirect account to speed up the application process when the service becomes available.

The department has asked that only people travelling on Sunday, 1 August, attempt to access the system in the first instance.

Once they have registered for an nidirect account, the department said people will be emailed on 31 July when the service and app are available.

The Department of Health has also asked that people travelling after 1 August not to apply “or they will simply delay the full restoration of normal services”.

The system has been out of action due to a risk of some applicants’ data being wrongly sent to other users.

The certificates are required by people who are travelling abroad and need official proof that they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

However, the online system has been overwhelmed after receiving “thousands and thousands” of applications from holidaymakers in the past few days. 

Some certificates are still being issued manually, but many holidaymakers fear their documentation will not arrive on time. 

“Essentially, we took down the service on Tuesday – the full service – because we were concerned about data security,” Dr O’Neill told the BBC’s Good Morning Ulster programme.

“We took the only responsible action that we could. In the background, we’ve still been issuing certificates.”

Since Tuesday, staff have been processing applications manually. 

“So we have been keeping the lights on, but it’s just been frantic in the background trying to make sure that we can get something up and running for people on the first of August,” Dr O’Neill said.

“We have done everything humanly possible. I’ve had developers working to five am this morning and they’re up again at seven – teams working through to try and get this solution in place.”

What went wrong?

On Tuesday evening, the Department of Health announced that the Northern Ireland Covid Certification Service had “experienced a technical difficulty and availability will be temporarily interrupted”.

The department added that it was “aware that a limited number of users in limited circumstance may be presented with data relating to other users”. 

When asked about the security issued on Friday morning, Dr O’Neill said: “The problem wasn’t actually in anything that we built.”

ReutersVaccine certificates are required by people who are travelling abroad and need to prove their vaccination status

He explained that the system is using the NI Direct website’s identity facility, through which people can set up a personal user account to access services such as driving licence renewals.

“It was never built for the scale of applications that we’ve been getting – thousands and thousands – and as a result of that, just one of the components in the back end just failed.

“So we’ve had to build it from scratch, rebuild with a different company to try to make sure we have something that will flex.

“So it’s with best endeavours that we’ve been doing this. It’s not a failure – I would actually say that we’ve done really well to get something over the line.”

How does NI compare to the rest of the UK?

Adults registered with GPs in England can apply for a NHS Covid Passwhich allow users to show proof of their vaccination, test or immunity status.

They are available to download through the NHS app (in England only) or applicants can request a paper document to be posted to their home address.

Holidaymakers in Scotland have been able to access a vaccine certificate since 19 May which could be downloaded from an NHS portal or requested in the post via a Freephone Covid Status Helpline.

However, the site suffered a security glitch on 22 May which enabled people to alter details on the document.

A fix was implemented on 25 May, which meant people in Scotland could only request the document be sent to them by post.

In Wales, public health advice still states that residents should “avoid international travel” but this is guidance rather than a ban.

At that time, the Welsh government advised people to register to download the digital pass at least two weeks before they were due to travel abroad.

Unlike England however, residents in Wales cannot use the NHS app to access the NHS Covid Pass.

Instead, they need to register for an NHS login which requires submitting photo ID such as a passport or driving licence.

Passport for access

First Minister Paul Givan has said he is cautious about introducing vaccine certification to allow people to gain access to public or private services.

He said it was a discussion the executive would have, but they would need to “weigh up the proportionality” before putting in this requirement. 

He claimed it could lead to the exclusion of some people who for whatever reason through health or other genuine concerns do not receive a vaccine.

“I think we need to be careful that we don’t then have a society where these people are unable to access either public or private services and that’s a discussion we’ll have as an executive going forward, ” added Mr Givan.

He also said he was not a believer in “mandatory” vaccinations, but he said the issue of “incentivisation” was one they could look at.

(BELFAST,N.I.) Crown Court Report: On 28th June 2021, 32 year old Niall Lehd, from Larne has been given a 24 year prison sentence after pleading guilty in June of this year to one count of preparation of terrorist acts #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.30: He will serve 24 years in prison and 5 years on licence. Upon his release from prison Lehd will also be subject to Terrorist Notification conditions for 30 years.

#AceDailyNews reports on the sentencing of 32-year-old Niall Lehd from Larne on Monday of 24yrs in prison and 5yrs-on-licence for terrorist acts

crest-resized.jpg

Detective Chief Inspector Griffin said: “The charge relates to the discovery of a number of hides at Larne and surrounding areas between March and September 2016. Undoubtedly these finds amounted to one of the most significant seizures of munitions in recent years in Northern Ireland. The sheer volume of weapons and component parts found in these hides had the capability to cause serious harm. The length of this sentence demonstrates the consequences for anyone who gets involved in this type of offending which there is no place for in today’s society: I would very much like to thank the members of the public who first alerted Police to these hides. This clearly demonstrates the vital role communities have in support of their Police Service: Today Northern Ireland is a safer place following the discovery of these hides. We will continue to work tirelessly to keep people safe and act on any information given to us by members of the public.

(BELFAST, N.I.) PSNI REPORT: Officers of the Paramilitary Task Crime Taskforce investigating illegal drugs arrested a 35yr-old-man on Fri.25:June:2021: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.27: Officers from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force (PCTF) investigating the organised illegal drug criminality linked to the INLA in Derry/Londonderry arrested a 35 year old man in Derry/Londonderry last night, Friday, 25 June. He remains in custody at this time:

#AceDailyNews reports that Paramilitary Crime Task Force officers arrested a man on suspicion of a number of drugs offences and possession of criminal property was stopped in a vehicle in the vicinity of Dungiven Road, Derry/Londonderry on Friday night and he’s is being held in custody

crest-centred.png

Following a search of the vehicle over 11 kilograms of suspected Class B drugs and a large sum of cash was seized as well as the luxury vehicle.

A follow-up search of a property in Derry/Londonderry was also conducted, where further large sums of cash, a quantity of herbal cannabis, vacuum pack bags and scales were seized. 

Detective Inspector Kerry Brennan from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force said: “The arrest and search conducted yesterday is further evidence of our commitment to end paramilitary organised drug criminality in all its forms. I know that there are many people in the local community who are affected by INLA’s drug dealing and violence and they support our ongoing efforts. I believe these drugs were destined to be sold in the local community, putting a further strain on our health services and bringing about more harm to the people of the city: I would appeal to anyone who has any information about drugs criminality to contact police. However, I recognise and understand that there are some who may be reluctant to report this activity to the Police Service of Northern Ireland for various reasons. I would like to reassure everyone in the community that we will investigate all reports of crime fairly and proportionately, and where there is evidence bring this before the courts:

“Police, working with our partners and communities, are committed to tackling the scourge of this type of organised criminality. Drug dealers remain a priority for the PCTF due to the Human Rights abuses they carry out in their local communities and we are working hard to disband this organised criminal group. We will continue to listen to communities and act on information they provide, so I would encourage members of the public with information regarding drug dealing and any form of criminality to call us on 101.

“A report can also be made online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/ You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/”

We are keen to hear from witnesses of this incident

The Police Service of Northern Ireland is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information that will assist the investigation to contact us on the non-emergency number 101. Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

(BELFAST, N.I) DUP Leadership Report: Edwin Poots steps down and Paul Givan takes a temporary position as the only candidate now is Jeffrey Donaldson ….Third time lucky? #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.23: Edwin Poots announced his resignation last week after an internal party revolt, leaving the DUP looking for a third leader in a matter of weeks:

NORTHERN IRELAND: DUP Leadership: Sir Jeffrey Donaldson is only candidate: Lagan Valley MP Sir Jeffrey Donaldson is the only candidate to succeed Edwin Poots as Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) leader after nominations closed at midday on Tuesday.

Sir Jeffrey Donaldson
Sir Jeffrey Donaldson is the only candidate for the DUP leadership

Sir Jeffrey’s name will go forward to the party’s electoral college, which is expected to meet on Saturday.

Anyone interested in the position had to submit their names to the party chairman Lord Morrow, backed by a proposer and a seconder.

After the meeting of the electoral college he will have to be ratified as party leader at a meeting of the DUP executive, which could take place next week. 

He would become the party’s fifth leader in its 50-year history: BBC News NI looks back at the six weeks that led to Edwin Poots being elected and then resigning as leader of the DUP

In a statement issued after the nomination process closed, Sir Jeffrey said he had the “vision to unite Northern Ireland and heal the divisions of the past”.

“The task ahead is great,” he said.

“I do not underestimate the challenge but I know the overwhelming majority of people who live here want Northern Ireland to keep moving forward.”

Sir Jeffrey has previously said he would leave Westminster to run for the Stormont assembly in order to be Northern Ireland’s first minister if he became DUP leader.

Such a move would mean a by-election would take place to fill his seat in Lagan Valley.

We know that Sir Jeffrey Donaldson wants to be Northern Ireland’s first minister so that means he needs to find a seat in the Stormont assembly.He will need to get his political ducks in a row to find a path from Westminster to Belfast.The clearest way is through the co-option process, which allows a party to replace an assembly member without a by-election, although it remains to be seen which constituency he would target.

There is no sign that the two DUP MLAs in his political powerbase of Lagan Valley – Paul Givan and Edwin Poots – will be stepping down anytime soon.The only obvious vacancy coming up in the near future is in Fermanagh and South Tyrone, the political home of Arlene Foster.Lord Morrow said the past few weeks had been “difficult for the party and mistakes have been made”.

The peer added: “Now is the time to move forward in a spirit of humility and mindful that our focus must be on serving the people whom we represent.”I look forward to the challenges of rebuilding and reconnecting in the time ahead.”Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis said he looked forward to working with Sir Jeffrey and the Stormont executive to “deliver on the shared interests of all the people of Northern Ireland”.’

‘Decisive action’Sir Jeffrey has already outlined his priorities and has said the number one issue is the dealing with the post-Brexit trade arrangements for Northern Ireland, known as the protocol.

The mechanism, which was part of the UK-EU Brexit deal, keeps Northern Ireland aligned with the EU single market for goods, ensuring free trade across the Irish border: However, it has placed additional restrictions on goods moving between Northern Ireland and Great Britain, prompting unionists to complain of there being an Irish Sea border.

On Tuesday, Sir Jeffrey said he wanted to speak to Prime Minister Boris Johnson about the protocol “at the earliest opportunity”.He said he would “emphasise that it is not realistic to expect stability when every unionist representative in the devolved institutions opposes the Northern Ireland Protocol”.”The government and those who claim to be protectors of peace and stability must step up and deal with the protocol in a manner which respects the constitutional and economic integrity of the United Kingdom,” he added: Who is the man set to be the DUP’s new leader?

Pacemaker Edwin Poots says there is a section of the DUP that struggled to accept he won the leadershipThe leadership vacancy arose when Mr Poots resigned after just 21 days in the position he took over from Arlene Foster.

He had defeated Sir Jeffrey in the party’s first leadership election on 14 May by 19 votes to 17.Mr Poots’ resignation came after he agreed a deal with Sinn Féin and the UK government over provisions for Irish language legislation.Sinn Féin had refused to nominate a deputy first minister unless such a commitment was made.Without nominations within seven days of Mrs Foster stepping down as first minister within the joint office, an election could have been called.A continued impasse could have led to a suspension of Stormont.A majority of DUP MPs and MLAs opposed Mr Poots’ plans to nominate Paul Givan as first minister in an internal revolt at a party meeting.Mr Poots was then summoned to a meeting of DUP officers on Thursday evening, after which he announced his resignation.Liam McBurney/PA WirePaul Givan looks set to be the shortest-serving first minister of Northern Ireland

Speaking in an interview with Sky News on Monday, he said: “There was a section in the party that struggled to accept that I won the election, that I won it democratically, I won it fairly.”That’s how things are now, that I’ve been forced into a resignation.”In terms of the support I received, it didn’t come from people that it should have and that’s just a reality that everybody knows.”Who is Sir Jeffrey Donaldson?PacemakerSir Jeffrey, born in Kilkeel, County Down, became politically active as a constituency agent for the South Down MP Enoch Powell (above, left) in the mid-1980s before working as a personal assistant to the former Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) leader James Molyneaux.

After James Molyneaux retired as an MP in 1997, Sir Jeffrey was voted as his successor as MP for Lagan Valley, retaining the seat through six subsequent elections: He is a member of the Orange Order and also served as a corporal in the Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) during the Troubles.In 2003, following long-standing opposition to the Good Friday Agreement and the leadership of David Trimble, he announced he would leave the UUP, later joining the DUP, along with Arlene Foster and Norah Beare. He was appointed to the Privy Council, a body which advises the monarchy, in 2007 and stood down as an MLA for Lagan Valley in 2010.He was awarded a knighthood in 2016 for political service.Sir Jeffrey was defeated by 19 votes to 17 in the DUP leadership election to succeed Arlene Foster in May:

#AceNewsReport – June.17: Edmundas Gedvilas (63) was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment – half in prison and half on licence – for one count of Possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply: Raimondas Zilionis (41) was sentenced to 32 months imprisonment – half in prison and half on licence – for two counts of Possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply:

PSNI Report: ‘Detectives welcome sentencing of two men at Newry Court for 32-months following seizure of drugs’

HighRes_PSNI_Crest_500px.png

Detective Inspector Shaw said: “I welcome the conviction of both Gedvilas and Zilionis following the recovery of these drugs in May 2020 after police stopped and searched a vehicle under the Misuse of Drugs Act on the Armagh road between Armagh and Newry. On completing a search of the area officers located an amount of suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of over £60,000: The Police Service of Northern Ireland is committed to both preventing dangerous drugs from ending up in local communities and pursuing those intent on destroying lives through the supply of illicit drugs: Drug dealers seek to make profit at the expense of causing harm and loss to local families. They set out to ruin the communities that they operate in and they do not care about the damage that they cause, preying on the most vulnerable members of their communities: We will continue to robustly and proactively pursue those who are intent on damaging our communities by supplying illegal drugs and the communities most damaged by the scourge of drugs support our ongoing efforts.

I would appeal for anyone with information regarding the supply of illegal drugs to contact police on 101 or submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/.

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI REPORT: Ending Harm Campaign: Caused by illegal money lenders has recently been launched as part of tackling Paramilitarism and gangs #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.16: The Police Service of Northern Ireland is supporting the ‘Ending the Harm’ campaign launched today which aims to raise awareness of the devastating impact that illegal money lenders have on the wider community.

The “Ending the Harm” campaign, which is part of the Tackling Paramilitarism Programme, is aimed at highlighting the harm caused by paramilitary gangs, directly addressing the ‘societal shrug’ towards some paramilitary gang practices and this campaign represents another iteration of that.

crest-centred.png

Speaking at today’s launch Assistant Chief Constable Bobby Singleton said: “This campaign highlights the devastating impact that illegal money lenders have, not only on victims, but their families, the local community and wider society: The people who purport to be helping people by offering them loans when they feel they have nowhere else to turn are not doing it for nothing. They will always want something in return – and I don’t just mean a hefty interest rate. In the long run they will want more than their money back. They will charge you exorbitant interest rates and set unrealistic pay back targets. They will tell you that you are in their debt forever, they will threaten you and coerce you into getting involved in their criminal world, for example, they may tell you that you have to peddle their drugs for them, or ‘handle’ criminal property: My message is simple. Policing works for communities, particularly for those communities that engage and work with us. We are targeting the groups and individuals we suspect are responsible for exploiting the most vulnerable in our community: There are obvious difficulties in getting victims of illegal money lenders to come forward due to fear but the Police are far from powerless when it comes to dealing with these people who are exploiting their own communities: Ultimately we all have a role to play in creating a safer society and ending the harm caused by these criminals.

“If you are in debt and feel you have nowhere to go please know that there is independent help available, Advice NI, which is an independent charity, offers confidential advice to anyone who finds themselves in this situation. For totally independent advice you can contact Advice NI on 0800 915 4604.”
