  • Description

    Irish Republican Army militant Joe Cahill returned to Dublin on Thursday (9 September) after a United States Immigration hearing ruled that he must be deported. His visa had been cancelled by order of the U.S. State Department. He had been interned in a New York detention centre for the past week.

    On arrival in Dublin, he was arrested by Irish Police. Authorities announced that he was being held under the Offences Against the State Act, a measure that permits imprisonment without trial. He is under suspicion of belonging to an illegal organisation.

    Interviewed by reporters shortly before he was taken away by police officers, Mr Cahill said that civilian casualties that have occurred as a result of violence in Northern Ireland were a terrible tragedy, but insisted that it was Britain who had declared war.
