Report: IRA still a bunch of crooks

Although it's glossed over with the proviso that the organization has made "progress" since "disarming" (scare quotes intentional).
But the IMC said it was aware of at least six unreported assaults by IRA members, and expressed concerns that the organisation was still involved in intelligence gathering and organised crime, including tobacco and fuel smuggling.

Senior members of the organisation were also accused of laundering money, with the proceeds of crime being used to buy property or legitimate businesses.
