Sinn Féin comments on UDA Decommissioning

6 January, 2010 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin north Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly this afternoon said he ‘welcomed’ the statement from the UDA, that they have decommissioned their weapons.

Mr Kelly said;

“Firstly if this statement by the UDA is verified by the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning then it is a substantial move forward.

The Nationalists and Unionists populations will both be relieved that a substantial amount of guns are being taken off our streets and nationalists communities in particular would rest much easier as a result of that.

There can be no place for guns as we move forward in advancing the political process, this process has been about taking the gun out of Irish politics.” CRÍOCH
