Had to laugh when I read this headline.It will tell the public nothing, it will be a "whitewash" job, poor mouth performance.She will talk a lot but not say anything.She will be "coached intensively" so there will be no slip ups/incriminating material said.I don't expect a full face on camera interview, but rather the camera angle will be from over her shoulder from the back.It is the "Norm procedure" done in the UK and elsewhere when someone is facing trial.I would not hold my breath for any important revelations , the interviewer will not ask the hard questions because the person interviewed is potentially facing criminal charges and legal proceedings.Therefore a public TV trial is not allowed and the channel doing the interview will have to submit the questions to Lisa Smith'sr defense legal team before the interview.That's why the TV interview is going to be a "soft ,whitewash , butterflies and songbirds and bunnies interview", aka worthless
I am curious also about why the local authorities didn't want her and the only thing I can think of is that they just want all of them out of the country.I wouldn't argue with your last sentence.
But as I think Field Marshal opined earlier, the proper course would be to hand her over to the legitimate authorities in Syria, i.e the Syrian Arab Army and police force, for interrogation. She invaded their country. Striking that in the discourse of worthless Irish journalists (sic) there is no mention of that salient fact, and no reference to the role of the Syrian government in all this.
She is a known member of a religious sect which is out to bring us back to the Stone Age which is reason enough to detain her.Had to laugh when I read this headline.
Last time I checked, we were a common law jurisdiction.
She doesn't need to make any "case" whatsoever.
She doesn't have to account for what she was up to or who she associated with.
She's not obliged to answer any questions while being interviewed by the Gardai.
There's literally nothing they can charge her with unless she volunteers the information herself or a reliable witness magically materialises out of thin air.
All she has to do is keep her mouth shut and that'll be the end of it.
But unless the DPP are confident that they have a strong enough case to have her prosecuted for committing a specific offense there's phuck all they can do.She is a known member of a religious sect which is out to bring us back to the Stone Age which is reason enough to detain her.
Same rules for all. No US invading armies allowed through Shannon.It's not practical, I'd start with their leaders Bush, Blair, Rumsfeld, Cheney and the rest of the butchers but then I'm not advocating Smith be handed over to the Syrians...what about yourself GD and opinion on the matter?
"So she went to Syria"Oh, the persistent islamophobic/xenophobic bullshit - I would have thought that was obvious.
So she went to Syria with her husband, I've no idea about the three others you're alledging but so the fu_ck what? She is being interviewed by the guards and if she has broken and laws she'll be sent forward for trial as is her right and she will be able to put forward her side of the story.
That may be the case but one cannot hold her responsible for the crimes of some guy in London.
Thankfully we don't live in the type of fascist dictatorship you seem to be eulogising, she is entitled to a trial and what will be will be.
The hysteria over Smith is amusing when one considers that this state has and continues to allow US soldiers traipse back and forth through Shannon fresh from massacering innocent people, not a peep from the likes of you on that front....
