McGuinness welcomes Brian Chivers bail decision

18 September, 2009


Sinn Féin MP Martin McGuinness has welcomed the decision of the High Court in Belfast to release Brian Shivers, the man charged in connection with the attack on Maserene Barracks, on bail.

Mr McGuinness said:

“I welcome the decision of the High Court in Belfast today to release on bail Brian Shivers. This man is clearly ill and he is obviously in need of specialist medical care.

“It is important that the criminal justice system is seen to respond in a compassionate and fair manner.” ENDS
