Stolen Art Watch, John Hogan exposed as Brigadier Gordon Kerr's Top Informant !!

Derry INLA uncover 'British agent'

The 'Journal' can reveal that one of the INLA's most senior members in Derry has been working as a British agent for more than 20 years.
A source close to the INLA says it recently discovered the man has been passing information to both MI5 and police Special Branch since 1985.

It’s thought that the man, believed to be from the Greater Shantallow area of the city, was a central figure in the organisation throughout the 1980s and 1990s. As such, it’s understood he would have been aware of all INLA operations in the city.

The INLA source revealed that the man was a key member of the organisation until the late 1990s and, since then, had continued to be involved with the IRSP - the organisation’s political wing - and served at a high level in the party.

The source told the ‘Journal’: “We have just discovered an informer within the organisation. He has been passing information to the British security forces since 1985 and getting paid for it. He met with his MI5 and Special Branch handlers regularly, as often as every two weeks, to pass on information. He was in a central position within the INLA in the 1980s and would have known details of every operation taking place in the Derry area.

“He was a big figure within the INLA. In fact, he would have been a very central figure in the INLA up until eight or nine years ago. Since then he worked largely with the IRSP. We believe that, during this time, he continued to pass on low level intelligence on the activities of the IRSP. He was working for his handlers right up to when he was uncovered,” the source said.

Being ‘debriefed’

It’s suggested that the man is currently being “debriefed” by the INLA in Derry.

The source added: “He is being very co-operative. He is giving a full account of the information he passed to his handlers.The debriefing could be a long process because he was passing information for such a long time and meeting his handlers so regularly.”

According to the INLA source, the man is not under any threat from the organisation. “He has nothing to fear from the INLA. He is co-operatiing with the republican socialist movement and there is no threat against him,” the source said.

A spokesperson for the IRSP condemned the recruitment of informers and encouraged anyone in a similar position to come forward.

“As a political party, we condemn any efforts by a foreign government to infiltrate our party. We would also encourage anyone else who may find themselves in a similar position of working for British intelligence to come forward and they will get a sympathetic ear from us.”

Art Hostage comments:

Looks like John Hogan has some explaining to do !!
A'h, that's why Dessie O'Hare and Declan Duffy are getting so much flack, they are guilty of not succumbing to the charms of Brigadier Gordon Kerr and his Merry Murderous band, not ever becoming Brit military intelligence spies, sticking to their Irish Republican ideals, OK, with a bit of criminal enterprise thrown in.

A strange paradox, Dessie O'Hare, Declan Duffy, Declan McGlinchey etc have never, ever, been Touts, never, ever, co-operated with the Brit's, what do they get for this, a Contract taken out on their lives, thank god no-one has taken up this contract hit.

Whatever one may think about Dessie and the two Declans, they have worked for the Irish Republican cause unstintingly, and yes lined their own pockets, love them or hate them, they are either "Stand up guys" or politically naive, art hostage thinks the former.

As Brigadier Gordon Kerr's secret informant, John Hogan was asked by Brigadier Gordon Kerr to try and secure the stolen Gardner art for Dick Ellis, who is an old friend of Brigadier Gordon Kerr.

Seems like that route has now been closed, so perhaps the sting operations to secure the stolen Gardner art will finally stop.

Maybe some honesty and truthfulness will be forthcoming.

Watch out for Mr McGinley and Mr Sheridan's double cross game being exposed.

Brothers of charity, my arse, Brothers of Opportunity more like !!

Ask yourself why was the Gardner Museum robbed?

Answer this then you will realise the INLA connection.

The American connection:

It is no wonder the Gardner art has not been recovered, authorities will not allow any reward money to be forwarded to these guys.

Ironically, authorities would gladly allow reward money to be paid to Irish Gangsters, if they promise to spend it on high living and not political purposes.


John Hogan has been allowed to leave Ireland in disgrace due to the sincere Olive branch extended to him by the Honourable Mr Willie Gallagher, who I must add, has acted with a political maturity normally befitting a statesman.

Dick Ellis is trying to sting the Irish guys who hold some Gardner art.

He is going to get them all arrested soon, so beware of the Dick Ellis false promises and undercover sting operation happening now in Ireland.
