30/11/12

éirígíBrian Leeson, national chairperson of the republican socialist party éirigí, has been released from garda custody without charge.

In a statement, the party’s general secretary, Breandán Mac Cionnaith, revealed that Leeson had been released just before 10pm last tonight (Thursday).

Mac Cionnaith said, “Brian’s arrest and detention was a cynical exercise by the gardaí designed to foster a climate of black propaganda and misinformation within sections of the media directed against Brian and against our party in general.

“Brian’s release, without charge, confirms our view that his arrest had a clear political motivation.

“That view is also shared by the many people from various campaigning groups and from a wide range of political opinions right across Ireland who contacted the party in recent days to express concern about Brian’s arrest.”
