SF comments on UVF weapons speculation

18 June, 2009 - by Gerry Kelly

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
