What’s the Sallins Case all about?
Kidnapping, illegal arrests, torture, framing of suspects, kangaroo courts, cover ups and criminal conspiracy are all words associated with the most notorious and longest running case in Irish history.
Following the arrest of 40 people in 1976, 18 men were tortured by The Garda Heavy Gang. Three people were framed for a robbery, tried unfairly without a jury and jailed for 33 years. International campaigns have resulted in their being found innocent nd released from jail. But all Governments refuse an inquiry. The State refuse to investigate the crimes against these men. The international campaign for an impartial sworn public inquiry, as dictated by international law, is ongoing since.
