Kelly calls for compensation for policeman

2 July, 2012 - by Gerry Kelly


Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said PSNI officer Peadar Heffron should receive compensation as he was attacked because of his job.

The North Belfast MLA and member of the Policing Board said:

“Peadar Heffron should receive compensation as he was attacked because of the job he does. Refusing compensation on the basis of whether he was on duty or not is totally wrong. He was targeted in the first place was because of his job.

“I have already raised the matter with the Policing Board and will be formally bringing it in front of the Policing Board meeting this Thursday.”
