Disbelief at Omagh arson attack

25 June, 2008


Sinn Féin West Tyrone MLA Barry Mc Elduff says that there is widespread disbelief and anger in the community at last night's arson attack at the adult Care Centre at Arvalee in Omagh which caters for people with learning disabilities.

He said,

"It defies belief that anyone could target this facility. People are extremely angry that facilities that are used by the most vulnerable in our community have been vandalised and set and fire. Apart from the massive financial cost of repairing the damage done in this attack, the impact on the people who attend the Centre and on their families is uppermost on everyones' minds at this time.

"The task is to ensure that both interim and long provision is now made to accommodate all those affected by this attack." ENDS
