SCEPTICAL OF ALLEGED BRETON- IRISH TERROR LINKS

The Celtic league is extremely sceptical about news reports from

France linking a number of Bretons to the so-called Real IRA.

Yesterday a number of people were arrested in Normandy and in Brittany

and there was also reportedly a 'haul of arms'.

However, within 24 hours it is already revealed that one of those

detained has been released and we need not remind visitors to the

Celtic News pages about the record of the French government when it

comes to sustaining allegations of links between Breton nationalists

and terrorism.

Six Bretons remain in jail after four years with the French State

still incapable of bringing forward credible evidence to progress

a case to trial. At the time of the earlier detentions there was a

similar media frenzy and allegations of terrorist links.

It should also be remembered that periodic assertions of terror links

between the Celtic countries are made but very little evidence of

substance is ever produced.

On the other hand the tangible and strengthening links of constitutional

nationalists across the Celtic World receive very little column inches

in the London and Paris media.

We would reiterate that healthy scepticism is the best response to

these latest allegations of a 'terror links'. If and when the French

Courts are able to sustain a credible case against Breton nationalists

then we should think again, but given the record of the French criminal

justice system we will be waiting a long time!
