5 May, 2015 - by Jim McVeigh


Sinn Féin Councillor Jim McVeigh will be making a formal complaint to the PSNI tomorrow after he was verbally abused and his car attacked by loyalist protestors at the gates of Belfast City Hall.

Jim McVeigh said:

“As I tried to enter the back gates of City Hall my car was surrounded by a crowd of loyalist protesters.

“My car was kicked, bounced and struck with sticks.

“I was verbally abused, and several of the crowd were shouting insults about the murder today of Gerard Davison. Their behaviour was despicable.

“I intend to make a formal complaint to the police tomorrow and ask that the people responsible be investigated.

“Sinn Féin will not be intimidated by thugs, we will continue to pursue our equality agenda in Belfast City Council.”
