One of the Brothers went to Tong Street, Bfd to do a few things (parked his car), before he was going to pick the others up. When he got back to his car, there were 30 odd coppers and bomb squad!
He is a electrician by trade, they must have seen the Burnley 9.11 flyers and electrical equipment at the back! They were going to blow up his car, but he got back in the nick of time.
He was Llocked up for 24 hours, interegated etc. All his mates were ringing him up all evening, because he was supposed to pick them up and take them to the event!
He is now released! If they had blown the car, he would not have seen daylight for 90 days. "
Slightly more info on this incident. It would seem that the precipitating factor for the police action was the visible presence of leaflets in the car advertising the Burnley Rodriguez gig! The guy who was arrested was told initially that the flyers were regarded as terrorist literature!!!! Apparently when he returned to his car the area was cordoned off, police, bomb squad, fire engines and ambulances were present. The bomb squad were preparing a "controlled explosion" on the vehicle - if this had happened the guy could still be conceivably cooling his heels in some cop shop cell.
He may be willing to come out with his story and an interview is hopefully lined up for an independent radio station. More accurately it is said he was falsely imprisoned for 14 hours it seems. How long did it take to check out that car and the information on the flyers?
We intend to take this disgraceful story as far as it can be taken. It obviously represents an attack on street level of this movement, especially considered alongside Stephen's Liverpool tale
