VICTIMS campaigner Willie Frazer has claimed that the IRA was involved in putting horse meat into meat products.
Mr Frazer who is prominent speaker at the ongoing flag protests, made the claims to the University Times website.
Speaking about IRA criminality, he said his claims about their involvement in the trade of horse meat were raised five years ago.
He said: “It’s the same with cows that have to be sold within a certain number of months after they’re born. Basically old fat cows that are 30 months old have been put into the food chain because the republicans have the means of getting it in. And a blind eye has been turned to it.
“This is the kind of thing that’s going on that we’re sick of… There is a blind eye being turned to so much fraud so that they don’t upset the peace process.
“That is what is creating the problems here.”
