Sinn Féin MLA Caitríona Ruane said the recent spate of letter bombs will do nothing to advance Irish republicanism.
The South Down MLA and member of the Policing Board said:
“These recent spate of letter bombs, including the one today posted to the British Secretary of State, will do nothing to advance the cause of Irish republicanism.
“The people of Ireland have moved on and the tiny minority who are intent on trying to drag people back into conflict will not succeed.
“These groupings are trying to make themselves relevant by actions such as this when all they really do is show up their lack of vision and contempt for the Irish people.”
