RUC forced to return Felons chairs

Dickie Glenholmes, treasurer of the Felons Club in Belfast took charge of the 50 chairs returned to the club by the RUC last Thursday, 29 June.

Last year, the RUC accused the Felons of handling stolen goods and took the chairs away, but two weeks ago the courts ruled in favour of the club.

The RUC was ordered to return the chairs, but the club had since bought new chairs as replacements and are now offering the chairs to any youth club or voluntary organisation who may have need of them.

Felons chairperson Liam Shannon has accused the RUC of carrying out a vendetta against the club. He said the RUC knew all along that the chairs were purchased legitimately.
