About this deal

Sheriff Alistair Carmichael told Notman that the serious and repeated nature of the offence meant there was no alternative to a custodial sentence. The court was told that Notman had suffered a heart attack in prison while he was being held on remand and had been receiving treatment at Perth Royal Infirmary. Martin Mullen and Gerald Gilmour’s plan was halted by police analysis of coded mobile phone messages on the EncroChat platform used widely by criminal gangs. To some that was a reference to the Caravel Bar he and his wife Margaret had ran in nearby Barlanark for more than a decade until 1996.

In these blasted terrains, the big and hard men offered leadership and a sense of purpose in the absence of anything similar being offered by governments.

They offered affluence and status in exchange for unshakeable loyalty and generations of young men whose futures had been snatched away by mass unemployment were attracted by the opportunity to even up the score. It’s time they started to ask themselves why young men in these communities are seeking it in crime. Days later, two young hoods, Joe “Bananas” Hanlon and Bobby Glover, were found shot dead in a car that had been dumped at a spot near where young Arthur’s cortege would pass later that morning. Clinton later bragged on a Channel 5 documentary that stabbing was “the easiest thing in the world”. The court heard that Ferguson, who has previous convictions for drug-related offences, was released from prison in June 2019.Ryan Ferguson is now serving a prison sentence as a result of an extensive police operation, with oversight from COPFS, to investigate a network of drug supply. Prosecutor John Keenan KC told how the exact details of the killing "cannot be determined", but that there had been "no history of animosity" between the men.

In the past 18 months though, hostilities have been renewed with an intense ferocity that has led the Scottish government to intervene behind the scenes. He had a predilection for deploying power-tools and blow-torches in his day-to-day activity of enforcing the will of his boss, Jamie Daniels, head of the clan that bears the family name.The Crown will continue working with the police and other agencies as a member of Scotland’s Serious and Organised Crime Taskforce to ensure that these crimes are detected and those responsible prosecuted using all measures at our disposal. In a significant development, Gerard McTaggart, a 47-year-old plasterer, has been handed a prison sentence of more than four years for his involvement in a money laundering operation connected to Glasgow’s criminal underworld. You can see them, taking notes in the public benches whenever there are details given in evidence of police techniques. The 30 year-old went on the run and it was only in May 2022 that he was discovered in the Netherlands before being hauled back to face justice. McTaggart’s role consisted of delivering illicit “wages” in cash to associates and family members associated with a notorious organised crime group operating in the city.

The verdict was delivered at the High Court in Lanark, where details of McTaggart’s actions were brought to light.Prosecutors claimed 34-year-old Allen struggled with Lyons, kicked him and struck "him on his face with an unknown sharp implement to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement". She contacted the police when she realised they had slashed the tyres of a vehicle parked outside and ripped the CCTV system from the wall to remove evidence of their visit. A plasterer who delivered "wages" to Glasgow gangland figures and their families has been jailed for more than four years. Clinton went on trial at the High Court in Glasgow in April 2004, but the case collapsed after one day through a lack of evidence.
