No justice as John Gilligan walks free

Only the victims of crime suffer as criminal thugs abuse our flawed judicial system, writes Jimmy Guerin

First they released Larry Murphy, now it's John Gilligan, both amoral individuals who have terrorised women and shown no remorse. The release of these animals back into our society confirms one thing, that it's only ever the victims of crime who really serve a life sentence.

While Gilligan walks away from prison and moves back into the life he enjoyed prior to arranging the killing of Veronica, others affected by this horrible crime still suffer a loss and pain which they will take to their graves with them.

Families who have lost loved ones to the scourge of drugs must also feel pain as Ireland's biggest drug dealer is back on our streets.
