18 March, 2008

Sinn Féin Short Strand representative Niall O'Donnghaile has said that local people were shocked after a 19-month-old child was found in a car abandoned in the Short Strand area after it was hijacked in Mays Meadow area near Central Station on Monday night.

Mr O'Donnghaile said:

"The fact that these criminals hijacked a car with a 19-month-old child in the back seat shows a total disregard for human life.

"My thoughts and those of the local are community are with the family.

"I also want to praise the response of the local community. Information has now been given to the PSNI and we need to see those responsible for this abduction and this type of behaviour dealt with properly and effectively." ENDS
