Demonstration against drugs

 

ABOUT 400 anti drugs protesters marched last night on property believed to be owned by the man nicknamed "the Boxer" who is suspected of being one of Dublin's biggest heroin suppliers.

A brief demonstration was held outside two apartments in on Mountjoy Square believed to be owned by Mr Thomas Mullen (27), who was arrested in England last week. He is remanded in custody on a charge of conspiracy to supply heroin on or before June 12th, 1996.

Mr Mullen was arrested as he left a bank in London with a substantial sum in cash. He was publicly identified as "the Boxer" at a Dail committee last year by Independent TD Mr Tony Gregory.

Last night's march was one of a series organised by the Inner City Organisations Network.
