The Metropolitan Police must hand over its Irish hacking evidence to the Irish authorities.

(A small number of Cic Saor readers have asked me why I keep “banging on” about News International’s hacking exploits in Ireland. I hope that this blog will successfully explain why.)

Alex Marunchak arrested by the Met’s Operation Kalmyk in October 2012

In the picture above, Cic Saor readers can behold the face of Alex Marunchak. Guardian journalist Nick Davies and English Labour MP Tom Watson have comprehensively detailed the links once enjoyed by Marunchak and his fellow News Int. executive (and Ukranian compatriot) Greg Miskiw to the upper echelons of UK police and secret services.

Slugger O’Toole (Mick Fealty) throws a hissy fit in Cic Saor’s direction

(When is a question a "real" question - a) when Mick Fealty deems it to be so
Please see Mick Fealty's response at the bottom of this article)


Mick Fealty from his Guardian page - described as: a “writer, analyst and the founding editor of Slugger O'Toole”
