Unionist paramilitaries drug war spiralling out of control

1 July, 2004


Sinn Féin Upper Bann MLA John O'Dowd has warned that the drug war between rival unionist paramilitary factions in the Craigavon area is spiralling out of control and that lives will be lost unless unionist politicians and civic leaders intervene.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"In the past month there have been a number of incidents related to the escalating drug war between rival unionist paramilitary factions in the Craigavon area. Innocent families are being caught up in this violence. I would urge unionist politicians and civic and church leaders to intervene before lives are lost." ENDS
