Sinn Féin demands release of Ballymurphy man

23 December, 2007

Sinn Féin Councillor Marie Cush has demanded the immediate release of a local Ballymurphy man who was arrested at his home this morning by the PSNI.

Councillor Cush said:

"The young man arrested this morning should be immediately released and returned to his family. He had nothing to do with the shooting incident in Whitecliff Parade which is part of the ongoing dispute between two criminal gangs in the Ballymurphy area.

"The manner of his arrest and the offensive behaviour of the PSNI has caused serious anger the local community. Sinn Féin will be raising all of these issues with the PSNI through the various forums available." ENDS
