Gangland Glasgow: True Crime from the Streets
About this deal
Allan, who was caged in 2009 for the slaying of dad-of-five Raymond Black in the victim's Lanarkshire home, was accused of slashing Lyons on February 21, 2021. But today, via his lawyer Donald Findlay KC, he instead pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of culpable homicide at the High Court in Glasgow.
Ferguson sustained a head injury and Billy Joe Bates sustained a number of injuries including a fatal deep stab wound to the chest. Paul Lyons refused to go to court to give evidence - and even wrote to prosecutors to say the man who pleaded guilty had nothing to do with the attack on February 21, 2021. They’ve been shared around a pool of officers, many of whom will have had no previous connection to the informant.A Brewers Fayre is not the kind of place where you would expect a gangland hit or associate with an assassination. I helped the man into the recovery position, but he couldn’t speak as he had been stabbed through the throat. Four months before his murder, McPhee had been shot in the face with a flare gun as he drank in Shettleston Juniors social club.
He refused to leave his cell to go to court to give evidence, leading to a warrant being issued for his arrest. Last week it was revealed that the second highest ranked police officer in Scotland, Iain Livingstone, was also standing down amid reports that the entire senior police executive is set to move aside. A classic example was when he and McPhee both stood trial on cannabis smuggling charges in 1998 at the High Court in Edinburgh. Mr Hart had previously pointed out Clinton at a police ID parade, but when he gave evidence, he said he had possibly picked out the wrong man. At a High Court hearing in Stirling, White, from Gartcosh, Lanarkshire, was sentenced to nine years and 10 months in prison for serious organised crime and firearms offences.A GANGSTER who stabbed a man to death in a horror blade attack then fled to Europe for four years is behind bars.
Officers are also trying to determine if the attack is linked to shots being fired in the same road days before. These adverts enable local businesses to get in front of their target audience – the local community.
Deputy Crown Agent Kenny Donnelly underlined the integral role McTaggart played within the money laundering operation. His fate was probably sealed after the Lyons clan received information that he had violated the grave of a young member of their family who had died in childhood. There have been daylight shootings outside two primary schools in Glasgow at times of the day when children were being fetched by their parents. The teacher also said the attacker walked with his face fixed downwards, and left the same way, after picking up the murder weapon from the floor.
It was while attending Ross’s funeral in February 2003 that McPhee was warned he was in imminent danger. Another underworld figure, Mark Clinton, 33, was charged with murdering McPhee, five weeks after the pub slaying. He had a predilection for deploying power-tools and blow-torches in his day-to-day activity of enforcing the will of his boss, Jamie Daniels, head of the clan that bears the family name. Medics discovered his throat had been cut through to the spine and a knife was left embedded just below his left eye socket. Another former detective said changes in police attitudes to informants have left the force at a disadvantage when dealing with this heightened level of gangland activity.
Prosecutors also alleged that she used dirty money “to pay for a lifestyle outwith your legitimate means”.
