Home of Sinn Féin councillor attacked in Twinbrook

21 December, 2003


Sinn Féin Lisburn Councillor Sue Ramsey has expressed concern and warned nationalists and republicans to be vigilent after her home along with another in Twinbrook was attacked on Friday night in the latest home of a republican to be targeted in a ballbearing attack.

Cllr Ramsey said:

"In the past number of weeks the homes of a number of republicans have been targeted. These high velocity ball bearing guns that have also been fired at people walking in and around West Belfast are capable of causing serious injuring.

"The targeting of the homes in well over a dozen attacks in the past two weeks across West Belfast suggests that there is a degree of co-ordination and planning as well as specific knowledge. There is mounting suspicion that such attacks would not be possible with out the active assistance of those within the PSNI with access to such information.

"I would urge nationalists and republicans in West Belfast to be vigilent." ENDS
