POLICE arrested a man and his wife following a court hearing on suspected Migrant-gang violence on a notorious street in Leigh, Politicalite can reveal.
John O’Malley, 49 was in Bolton Magistrates Court on Thursday, October 1st after being charged with numerous offences relating to a disturbance on a notorious crime-ridden street in Leigh. He was arrested by Police on Saturday afternoon along with his wife, Carol O’Malley, 58.
John says he was held for six hours with no charge. His wife, Carol was arrested on suspicion of malicious communications and harassment, both were released without charge.
An emotional Mr O’Malley told Politicalite last night: “They arrested me and my wife”.
He told us they were arrested after being accused of “harassing two [alleged] ‘corrupt’ officers, They released me with and my wife with no charge.” added O’Malley.
John claimed: “It was all about intimidation, trying to scare us”.
The next day following he and his wife’s release, an alleged member of the Migrant drug gang, George Ionut – who was found to be using a false name to Police, was recorded trying to intimidate John as he walked down a local street.
Mr O’Malley, 49 who works as a shop-fitter claims that there is a ‘Cover-Up’ of crime by Romanian migrants on his street. was so fed-up of being misrepresented by incompetent lawyers, that he fired FIVE and did the job himself writing a defence statement that was praised by the Judge presiding as he pleaded to be protected from gang migrants.
In court, on Thursday Mr O’Malley pleaded with Judge Smith to order the Greater Manchester Police to protect him to which the Judge explained he “did not hold the power” to make such a request.
Greater Manchester Police have been accused of failing to protect Mr O’Malley – who has claimed he has been subject to intimidation and abuse by both the Police and the alleged Romanian Migrant Gang.
John told Politicalite last night that he has been victim to harassment and intimidation by Greater Manchester Police for a year after he reported a Migrant gang who had allegedly been selling drugs and committing anti-Social behaviour on his street in Leigh.
Police were called to the notorious Glebe Street in August 2019 after a disturbance and ‘mass fight’ just before 10am after an incident in which two men were taken into custody.
Alleged Romanian Gang Member Tano ‘Udila’, 20 was charged with affray and resident John O’Malley, 49, also of Glebe Street, was charged with violent disorder, affray and possession of an offensive weapon.
The case, that was expected to be heard at the end of October over five days was adjourned by the court and will now take place in September 2021.
Greater Manchester Police said in a statement last night to Politicalite: “At around 1.50pm on Saturday 3 October 2020 officers arrested two people – one man aged 29 and one woman aged 58 – on suspicion of harassment and malicious communications.”
“The man was also arrested on suspicion of public order, Both have since been released under investigation.”
Last night, it appeared that Greater Manchester Police were finally acting on the Migrant Gangs on Glebe Street.
