Seven Green Brigade members face trial over pro-IRA song


Recommended Posts

Seven members of the Green Brigade group of Celtic fans are to stand trial next month charged with singing a pro-IRA song.

 

 

 

They are alleged to have behaved in a way that "is likely or would be likely to incite public disorder" by singing the Roll of Honour at Celtic Park.

 

Paul Duke (38), Ross Gallagher (30), Christopher Bateman (29) David Gallacher (23), Sean Cowden (22), Kieran Duffy (19) and Greg Robertson (29) are charged with the offence.

 

Duke and Gallagher, both of East Kilbride, Bateman, of Irvine, Gallacher, of Glasgow, Cowden, of Rutherglen and Duffy, of Coatbridge, are accused of singing the song at the Champions League qualifier match at a Celtic against Elfsborg match on July 31, 2013.

 

Gallagher, Bateman and Robertson, also of Glasgow, are accused of singing the song at a league match against Ross County on August 3 last year.

 

Robertson faces the same allegation along with Gallacher in connection with match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle on August 24 last year.

 

The case against all seven - who plead not guilty - today called for a hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

 

They were ordered to return for trial, which is set to start next month.

Putting the subject matter to one side - what a fucking nonsense! A complete waste of money and resources by the police and the judiciary.

 

Really? I think it's public money and resources being put to excellent use.

Pity we can't punish their club too though. They're not entirely blameless either as history shows judging by their past inactions & tolerating and even encouraging these sort of people in their support

Explain how spending months prosecuting individuals for singing a song is a good use of public money.

Just get your brain working and you will know. But you are clever enough to know what this is about and the reply was sick enough as is.

 

Oh, I know exactly what it is about. It's the SNP and Police Scotland flexing their muscles with a nice show trial.

 

Now, why don't you explain your previous point.

Just get your brain working and you will know. Matter of fact, in your first sentence you admitted knowing what it is about. If you want to make your point, try it without asking for the obvious.

If you re-read your posts you will discover that nothing is obvious.
