Sinn Féin call for those responsible for St Colm's bomb hoaxes to stop immediately

29 October, 2008 - by Jennifer McCann


Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Jennifer McCann has stated that those responsible for bomb hoaxes at St Colm's School in Twinbrook must stop immediately. This follows the seventh bomb scare inside three weeks.

Speaking today Ms McCann said:

"Whoever is responsible for these bomb scares and the making these devices needs to get real. They are serving the interest of nobody. In fact they are causing massive disruption to the local community and to the school and its pupils.

"This most recent alert is forcing local people from their homes. There is palpable anger in the community over the devices being left at the school and now in local peoples gardens. On top of this residents are extremely angry at the amount of time the PSNI are taking to deal with these alerts.

"I am echoing the calls from local residents, that the leaving of these devices at school and in the surrounding area is totally unacceptable and needs to stop immediately. This community has endured enough in the past without someone now severely disrupting people lives. "
