LOYALIST victims campaigner Willie Frazer says the discovery of fuel laundering trailers at an unregistered meat plant demonstrates the IRA were involved in “horse burgers.”
Justice Minister David Ford recently revealed fuel laundering gear was discovered at the abbatoir in Newry last October.
Mr Ford stated: “One such plant was uncovered in Newry in October 2012. Two trailers were recovered which appeared to be mobile laundering plants at the site of an unregistered meat plant.
“There have been no prosecutions arising from the recovery of the trailers. Investigations by council Environmental Health Officers are ongoing.”
Mr Frazer, who was scoffed at from some quarters when he claimed the IRA were involved in the horse burger scandal, said: “People laughed when I said the IRA was involved.
“But it is only in certain areas where you could carry out that level of activity and get away with it.
“I would call for a more in-depth investigation. Nobody has yet been held to account.”
