Alongside the plans to murder criminals who refuse to pay extortion money, senior RIRA figures have begun the process of "weeding out" rank-and-file members who have fallen foul of the organisation.
Four high-level men were sent to the capital from the North after bosses ordered an "intense clean-up" of how the organisation operates.
Sources have confirmed over a dozen members who previously worked closely with Alan Ryan are to be sidelined in the coming weeks.
"We were shocked when we came down and saw the type of 's**t' that Ryan had running the show. They are nothing short of rabble and they have no place in the organisation," the Herald's source said.
