Fans Against Criminalisation

icon nopolice17 November ~ On Friday Celtic fans held demonstrations outside the Netherlands embassies in London and Dublin. They were demanding the release of two Celtic supporters being held without charge after their team played Ajax in Amsterdam at the start of November. The protest, backed by the Celtic Trust and Fans Against Criminalisation, was in support of Padraig Mullan and Andy Vance, who were injured by undercover Duch police after being caught up in clashes before the Champions League match.
