13 May, 2008

Sinn Féin deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MP, MLA and First Minister Ian Paisley MP, MLA and have both condemned last nights attack on an off duty policeman in Castlederg as a despicable and cowardly act.

Mr McGuinness said:

"The elements within our society who perpetrated this act have nothing to offer, they are without mandate or strategy and represent no one. I would encourage anyone with any knowledge regarding this attack to contact the police immediately and assist them fully in their enquiries. I would also like to commend the selfless actions of the passerby, whose quick thinking saved this police officers life." ENDS
