Shooting of Adrian Guelke
Flores provided false intelligence reports that led to the shooting of South-African-born lecturer Dr Adrian Guelke at his home in South Belfast on 4 September 1991.
- The lecturer was an outspoken critic of the apartheid dictatorship, and many years later he discovered that South African Defence Force (SADF) intelligence branch had doctored details from a leaked RUC Special Branch file, to make him a target for loyalists.
- Flores flew to Belfast via London in the autumn of 1991, contacted the UDA, and provided its south Belfast brigade with the revised intelligence report.
- The UDA fell for his story, and targeted the unfortunate academic a few days later.
