SF comments on UVF weapons speculation
Responding to media speculation that the UVF working with the IICD have put a significant amount of arms beyond use Sinn Féin Assembly member for North Belfast Gerry Kelly said:
“The IRA dealt with the issue of arms in a decisive way four years ago. If these reports prove to be true and the UVF have now followed suit then that would obviously be a welcome move.
“It is also important that other armed organisations go down this road. Politics is now working and there is no basis for any organisation holding onto arms.” ENDS
