    Great thread Sel! Keep up the good work, I'm keeping an eye on this one.
    Had a good read around a load of the links and others I found Googling re the Kinahan/Hutch fued.
    Always knew MTK was started with Macklin as the boxing face of a gangster backed venture and so was pretty shocked that over the years what was a gym over in Spain became some kind of management company and then a load of top UK boxers were affiliated with them. Seemed to be glossed over the backing behind the brand.

      Thanks Ton. I wouldnt mind, but that man in particular has single handedly destroyed what is maybe the fighting Irish's national past time. Utter disgrace.

      More to come in this thread. DK now strongly rumoured to have fled Dubai too on the day his mother in law was buried in Ireland, to boot.

      An MTK card cannot be held in Ireland, UK, Spain, USA or Dubai now. Even the upcoming Kazakhstan card has been pulled. Why are the signed fighters still clinging on to this animal ? Although Carl Frampton, for one, has removed all references to MTK from his media channels.

        --- Was this the syndicate responsible for that knifing of Brooksie in Spain?

        Seems like that was glossed over and now forgotten.

          No, Bobby. That was actually in Tenerife in the Canaries group of islands. Although they are 'owned' by Spain. See below marked **

          The Jamie Moore shooting in Marbella, Spain (2014-08-03) was the said syndicates enemies trying to assassinate DK, and shooting Jamie in error though, as he left DK's villa in the very early hours after a party. Moore was over in Spain to train Matthew Macklin for his upcoming Aug 10 fight at the (now closed) MGM (renamed MTK after a lawsuit), Marbella gym which was formed by DK and his "best friend" Matthew Macklin in 2012. DK had agreed to launder €12.5m for a young, hot headed exiled Dubliner from the northside called Gary Hutch but reneged on the deal and 'taxed' Gary's money. The botched DK assassination attempt that resulted in Jamie being shot, was obviously blamed on Gary Hutch and/or associates. Paul Kavanagh, uncle of Jamie the boxer headlining the main event at the Regency, was also shot dead in Dublin (2015-03-26) by his own gang, the KOCG for stealing money that he was collecting off a Drimnagh dealer that was in debt to the KOCG to just over €1m in installments. When kidnapped, texts on the dealers phone to Kavanagh sealed his fate. Jamie's father, Gerard 'Hatchet' Kavanagh, was also shot dead previously to this in 2014 in Spain in a convoluted plot that basically made him a sacrificial lamb for the Russian mafia (too long a story for this post). Despite DK's father (Christy Sr) sanctioning the assassination of Jamie's father and DK sanctioning the assassination of Jamie's uncle, Jamie was quite happy being promoted by DK (?) Go figure.

          On 2015-09-24 Gary Hutch was assassinated by the KOCG on the Costa del Sol, Spain at the The Angel de Miraflores complex at 11:30am in broad daylight in front of terrified children, women and bathers around a pool. What escalated the feud is the fact that Gary's uncle, a major North Dublin crime boss, Gerry Hutch (leader of the HOCG) had met DK face-to-face and paid the KOCG €200,000 as a sweetener not to shoot his nephew but they reneged and shot him anyway. Its also rumoured, but not confirmed (by myself) that a second installment of €200,000 was paid and again reneged on. Hence the upscaling of events that led to the Regency. Add to this: Darren Kearns was assassinated in front of his wife whilst leaving a Chinese restaurant in Dublin by the KOCG on 2015-12-30.

          Hence, DK was also the intended target at the Regency Hotel, Dublin MTK Friday weigh ins event (2016-02-05) that turned into a bloodbath with 3 Kinahan gang members being shot, one fatally by HOCG lads dressed in Garda Emergency Response Unit (ERU) uniforms armed with IRA supplied automatic AK-47 assault rifles, but DK managed to flee the building - widely believed to have been tipped off by MI5 handlers via phone 12 mins before the HOCG hit squad arrived, leaving family, friends and associates to bear the brunt of the onslaught. Although one of the spotters, (now dead, natural causes) who was trying to pinpoint DK for the automatic riflemen armed with a semi automatic pistol, had stayed the night before in the hotel and didn't arrive with the hit squad. There were no Gardai on duty at the Regency, despite all the signs and writings on the wall. Hence, the more recent theory that An Garda Síochána 'wanted' DK to get whacked. Was/is he more valuable to MI5 alive and they assisted his escape and pulled rank on the Gardai?

          Remember this, the backstory to all of this and THE biggest game in town, is terrorism. That's why the FBI are onto this. If the KOCG are sourcing multi million dollar shipments of heroin directly from the Turks and the Afghans - which they are - then the money trail leads back to ISIS. This aspect comes way above all the shootings and malarkey, on whichever soil/continent.

          The main event of the MTK show was to have been between Gerard 'Hatchet' Kavanagh's son, Jamie Kavanagh and Antonio João Bento for the WBO European Lightweight Title. In the 4 years since the Regency shootings there have been ~18 feud-accredited murders in Ireland and Spain (KOCG 16-2 HOCG) and 60+ foiled assassination attempts according to An Garda Síochána figures. The onslaught of revenge unleashed against the HOCG by DK is something Ireland has never seen the like of before. There was no expense spared in setting anyone up who was remotely related to the Hutch family or syndicate, even total innocents that had the same name or went to Hutch associated funerals.

          DK, having fled Ireland for Spain (~2007) and then fled Spain while on bail for Dubai - has now left Dubai, mainly because of the EncroChat breach, on the day his mother-in-law was buried in Ireland. The smart money says he will resurface in Macau, which as part of China, has no extradition treaty with Ireland, Belgium, Holland, Spain, USA or England - where DK is wanted for questioning over organised crime membership/directorship, multi-million pound drugs trafficking, murder, extortion and arms trafficking offences. Apart from that, Tyson, John and Peter Fury and BJS plus Thomas Stalker and other MTK apologists think DKs a great guy. Although a few ounces of free beak goes a long way.

          ** The word on the street about the Brooke incident is that he propositioned a male in a toilet (washroom) whilst taking a piss. And got more than he bargained for. Despite being on holiday with his family. And he paid a king's ransom to get a subsequent press blackout on it, save for his 'official' version which hardly whitewashed the event.

          His own 'official' explanation; quote:

          "It was an unprovoked machete attack in the early hours of the morning by a man I met earlier that night"

          Note - Peter Fury (DK apologist and ass licker):
          Have a sickbag ready if you want to watch this:

          He was jailed for 10 years in 1995 for possession and intent to supply class A drugs – only to continue orchestrating his business from behind bars.

          In 2008 he got another 2 years for drug-related money laundering.

          2012 - a court ordered him to pay back the assets and funds he had hidden from the original court case - agreed amount (but tiny tip of the iceberg) - £1.1m (laughable)

          Peter set up his multi million pound amphetamine business in an industrial unit in rural Helmshore, then imported millions of pounds worth of Christy Kinahan Snr (heroin addict, and also founder of KOCG) supplied 66% pure amphetamine from Belgium on credit, cut it, then distributed it wholesale around the north of Manchester to traveller contacts.

            PHONE FAIL Man in charge of Kinahan plot to kill Patsy Hutch took pictures of encrypted messages on his personal phone, courts hear

            THE man in charge of the Kinahan Cartel plot to murder Patsy Hutch compromised his encrypted phone by taking pictures of the messages on it with his personal mobile in case he forgot them, the Special Criminal Court heard.

            A lawyer for Patrick Curtis revealed the information today about his client as he suggested it might “be a clue as to his overall mental ability”. Patrick Curtis photographed encrypted messages on his personal phone

            Curtis, 38, pleaded guilty to directing the activities of a criminal organisation while Mohammed Smew, 27, admitted participating in the plot to kill Gary Hutch’s father Patsy between February 1, 2018, and March 3, 2018.
            PHONES SEIZED

            The court heard that two mobile phones were seized from Curtis’ home, which showed his role and how his orders were to be carried out by the sub-cell he was directing.
            One of the phones was an encrypted Aquaris device and was unable to be accessed.

            However, Det Supt David Gallagher, from the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau, said a Samsung phone also belonging to Curtis contained photographs of messages taken from the encrypted device.

            Garda Gallagher said: “It was established that the person using the pseudonym ‘Lordnose’ was in communication with Patrick Curtis giving directions to him.”

            One of the messages from Lordnose read: “We need a new car, the van will have to be in the night before.

            "No stupid chases and you have to be back in the van at 6.50pm and this has to be military.”

            Another text from Lordnose to Curtis read: “So the job is to be done on Wednesday morning.”

            Curtis replied: “Yeah pal will be done Wednesday, will you make sure we have someone to do the car.”

            This was a reference to Patsy Hutch’s daughter’s car at an address in Dublin 1, said prosecuting counsel Sean Gillane. MENTAL HEALTH CONCERNS

            The court previously heard that the cartel had planned to lure Patsy out by attacking the car or the house.

            The court also heard that Curtis has excessive compulsive disorder and a fear of being alone, which have impacted on his ability to endure jail time. Portlaoise Prison GP Dr Conor McGarry testified that Curtis had got locked in a car at age seven and broke his fingernails attempting to get.

            He is the only inmate in the prison to share a cell — with his brother Stephen, also jailed for the same plot — as his anxiety levels are so bad, said Dr McGarry.

            The medic also said that claustrophobia is Curtis’ main issue and putting him in a cell is like putting a man with arachnophobia in a cell with spiders.

            The court also heard that Smew, of Milner’s Square, Shanowen Road, Santry, Dublin 9, had accidentally removed himself from the plot by getting arrested during heavy snow brought by Storm Emma.

            The gang had been discussing the arrival of the storm amongst themselves in a Mercedes they were using to keep an eye on Hutch.

            Following Smew’s arrest in March 2018, he was remanded in custody and therefore unable to take a further role in the attempted murder. "Mr Justice Tony Hunt said the best thing Smew had going for him was “getting involved in the shenanigans during the snowstorm that put him out of the picture.”

            Both Curtis and Smew were remanded in custody for sentencing until August 31.

            Seven others have already been jailed for their role in the murder plot.

              JAIL PLOT PROBE Prison officer’s uniform found by gardai at Kinahan cartel safe-house in Finglas as major investigation launched

              • 29 Jul 2020, 7:30

              A MAJOR probe is under way after a prison officer’s uniform was discovered by gardai at a Kinahan cartel safehouse.

              The Irish Sun can reveal the item was recovered when local cops swooped on the pad in Finglas, north Dublin, last week. Gardai made the discovery during a raid

              During the raid, officers recovered small amounts of drugs, clothing and electronic equipment — but they were shocked to discover the Irish Prison Service uniform.

              One theory is that the uniform was to be used by young associates of the Kinahan-backed gangster ‘Mr Flashy’ in a brazen attempt to smuggle drugs into a Dublin prison.
              OPERATION TARA

              The raid at the property was undertaken by the divisional drug unit from Finglas Garda Station under Operation Tara.

              A source said: “The discovery of this uniform is quite sinister and could have been used for a number of reasons.

              “It could have been used to get drugs into the prison or for one of their associates to have more access to a prison — it could have been anything.

              “It might have been used to allow someone to walk around the front of the prison to throw drugs over the wall.

              “The (raided) place was also used in the past to store drugs but there’s been a lot of panic in recent days due to increased Garda activity in the area.

              "The question now is to establish how people connected to organised crime had access to the clothing.” SEARCH UNDER WARRANT

              A Garda spokeswoman said: “Gardai conducted a search under warrant at a residential premises in Finglas on Monday, July 20, 2020 at approximately 10.30pm.

              “A number of items were seized during the course of the search including a small quantity of suspected cannabis herb, drug paraphernalia, clothing and electronic equipment.”

              Cops are now trying to establish if the uniform was stolen from a prison officer.

              The property targeted in the raid has been fitted with bullet-proof windows after Mr Flashy and his mob were involved in a number of feuds.

              At present, Mr Flashy remains in Dublin despite the numerous attempts on his life.

              A number of his pals have already been killed in the ongoing Coolock feud.

              The pad has been used by Kinahan associates in the past and was also the scene of all-night parties.

              Among those who have stayed at the pad in the past are slain gangster Sean Little and Mr Flashy’s close pal, Scott Capper.
