The son of former INLA boss Dominic ‘Mad Dog’ McGlinchey has appeared in court on bomb charges.
Dissident republican Declan McGlinchey from Gulladuff Road, Bellaghy was released on continuing bail of £5,000 after appearing before Belfast Crown Court yesterday.
The 32-year-old construction worker denies the four charges of making explosives with intent to endanger life; possession of explosives with intent to endanger life; making explosives with intent and making explosives under suspicious circumstances.
He is alleged to have committed the crimes between January 17 and July 3, 2006. It is understood a bomb was discovered in Bellaghy in July. Two sureties of £5,000 each were also ordered, the defendant was told to surrender his passport and to report to police twice weekly.
Art Hostage Comments;
All part of the squeezing process to try and recover the stolen Gardner art, Vermeer in partiqular.
Allegedly, Whitey Bulger gave the Vermeer and co to Declan and Dominic jnr McGlinchey as a tribute to their father and also for the shelter and cover provided for Whitey Bulger when he has been in Ireland on the Lam.
The plan offered is, First one to recover the Gardner art, Vermeer in partiqular, recieves the "get out of jail free" card"
Whatever the details lets get the Vermeer to the nearest Catholic Church Confession Box as soon as possible.
Give them all "get out of jail free" cards if thats what it takes.
Time to "look big and pay up"
