Flanagan and Harris need to bring in every squad they have available to tackle the monies that these crime Gangs launder across this country.  I know they have had some success in the last number of years in raiding the offices of Solicitors, Garages, Accountants, Businessmen, Shop Owners, and people you would never think of – yes this includes those who would never have had a parking ticket.  These people are the key players in laundering and transferring millions across bank accounts throughout Europe and beyond.  Follow the money – people talk about this Dark Web and Bitcoin, so we need to know also and we should have Forensic Accountants and Gardai should be trained accordingly in tackling the finances of these dealers.  The example is set in Ireland with the CAB (Criminal Assets Bureau). 

The Kinahan Gang are supposed to be worth £1 billion.  Surely the countries that have this money in their banks can come forward and co-operate with the Irish, Spanish police and Interpol.  Let us not forget that there are people in Dublin south today and Dublin 4 especially who may drive around in their sports Mercedes, BMW’s, Range Rovers, but underneath it all they clean dirty money and their wives are just as guilty as their Gangster husbands.
