A Pastor Writes


On that sentence.

From Rev David Syms, of ‘Six Principles’ Baptist Church, Baltimore, Co Cork.

“…We then see Paul Begley [Garlic importation tax evader] being sent to prison for a tax offence while paying back the money, leaving a wife and children to be alone for six years while he serves his outrageous sentence .

…I made a commitment to go on hunger strike from next Tuesday in protest against the injustice of sentencing in this country. I only hope that being a person who is not very strong willed I can do this for a reasonable length of time. I hope my faith can get me through.”
