Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady has welcomed the news that a new dye will be added to agriculture diesel from 1st April making it harder for criminals to launder fuel. Brady said, “Fuel laundering has been a major issue that has seen the rise of criminal gangs, especially along the border area. “These gangs have caused untold damage to the environment as they dump their smudge in fields and rivers as well as attacking local communities opposed to their actions. “Farmers are entitled to a discount on their fuel costs for agricultural vehicles so it is important that we develop ways in which they can claim their entitlement without fear that it will be used for laundering. Brady added, “The new marker will be introduced on an all Ireland basis and this new product, which is resistant to the current processes of fuel laundering, will hopefully help address the problem of fuel laundering and an end to these criminal gangs.”
