PSNI Member Should Be Sacked

16 December, 2003


West Belfast Sinn Féin Representative Michael Ferguson has demanded that the PSNI member yesterday convicted for driving a Landrover at high speed towards a group of nationalists on the Springfield Road be sacked from his job.

Mr. Ferguson said:

"This PSNI member Constable Alan Leckey was yesterday convicted of driving a Landrover at Springfield Road residents during a protest against an Orange march being forced through the area.

"It was clear from both eye witness and video evidence that it was only through good fortune that nobody was killed as a result of this individual's behaviour.

"It is clear that this individual is not an appropriate person to be policing within the nationalist community. I would now expect that he would be removed from his position within the PSNI." ENDS
