Investigation into Human Trafficking and Labour Exploitation In Cork

Two People Loose Their Lives Following A Fatal House Fire In Mayfield, CorkGardaí in Cork County detained three males in their 30s and 40s under section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 for organized crime-related offenses. This morning’s operations included searches at five locations in Co. Cork and two in Co. Roscommon, leading to the seizure of evidential items. Over 100 Gardaí participated, led by detectives from the Divisional Protective Service Unit, Cork County.

The investigation, supported by specialists from various national units including the Human Trafficking Investigation & Coordination Unit and the Garda National Cyber Crime Bureau, targets an Organized Crime Group with Eastern European connections allegedly involved in human trafficking for labor exploitation in Ireland. International support from Europol enhances the investigation.

An Garda Síochána urges victims of human trafficking or labor exploitation to report to local stations or call the Garda Confidential Phone Number. Victims may not always report themselves, emphasizing the importance of community awareness and assistance. An Garda Síochána withholds further comments on the ongoing operation. Background information highlights sectors where labor exploitation commonly occurs, underscoring the need for vigilance and support

People who have been trafficked for the purpose of labour exploitation are typically (but not exclusively) made to work in sectors such as: agriculture, construction, entertainment, service industry, manufacturing and domestic servitude as well as begging.

They may be forced into labour exploitation directly by the OCG, but are more likely to be made available for work by 3rd party employers who often may not be aware of the activities of the OCG and believe that the labour may be legitimately sourced.

Further details on Human Trafficking and Labour exploitation can be found on the Garda website:https://garda.ie/en/crime/human-trafficking/

Cork councillor brands minister ‘a fool’ for criticising FG MEPs who voted for Nature Restoration Law

Clearly we see another law introduced that is not properly explained and the consequences are dire for Irish people.
Flooding remedial works, building of all sorts including public building such as schools and hospitals will now be affected. I used the word reckless in my interview with Gerry O Sullivan on Kerry Radio yesterday.

I will now up grade it to dangerous. I expressed my concerns for years on the Directions the European Commission is taking us, for years, even though I am not an MEP as I spend alot of my time meeting with the Commission to discuss their program on such issues, I am present as a key stakeholder, problem is few of our MEPs understand what it is they are being told. This is why Ireland is losing out in Europe in many key areas.

As a Aontu Candidate in June Elections I am asking you to consider loaning me your vote so I can work for Ireland for the next 5 years and promise you I will consult you the people while I am there regularly and it will not be five years time before you see of hear from me just before the election.
Can you name you current MEPs ?
If not ask yourself why?

Fossil fuel is slowly becoming a thing of the past and will get more expensive with the introduction of carbon tax. Households are advised to use smokeless fuel. This is very expensive on the average household

Richard A Lifesaver For An 83Year Old Woman

Richard A Lifesaver For An 83Year Old Woman

Richard A Lifesaver For An 83Year Old WomanParents stairlift stopped working after recent powercut. My father totally reliant on it. Rang Richard on bank holiday Monday evening, he came out next day and got it sorted. Have no hesitation in recomnending him. A most reliable, efficient and amicable gentleman.

I was just recovering from a hip replacement when I broke my opposite ankle in 3 places. Richard came out immediately when I contacted him and 2 days later installed a refurbished stair lift for me at a very affordable price as I was under 65 and not entitled to any grant. He took only 4 hours to install it and it gave me back my freedom to stay, and to work from home

.

Richard came to repair our stairlift which is a lifesaver for my 83 yo mother. he was polite, professional, and did a wonderful job, i would recommend him and his company to anybody requiring this type of work.
