Sinn Féin to meet Ombudsman over Stoneyford concerns

19 December, 2007

Sinn Féin Lagan Valley MLA Paul Butler will lead a party delegation to meet with the Police Ombudsman, Al Hutchinson, tomorrow, Thursday 20th December to discuss concerns about the failure of the PSNI operation in Stoneyford to protect nationalists from Loyalist attack and intimidation.

Speaking ahead of the meeting Mr Butler said:

"I am very concerned that the PSNI operation in Stoneyford appears unable to provide protection against Loyalist intimidation and attack.

"I have meet with the PSNI and made it clear that they need to ensure that nationalists in the village are protected. The Nationalist population of Stoneyford need reassurance that they can live free from sectarian intimidation." ENDS
