Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has expressed his sympathy on the death of Lothar Bisky, the President of the GUE/NGL group in the European Parliament from 2009 to 2012.

Speaking today Deputy Adams said;

“Lothar Bisky was President of the GUE/NGL group from 2009 to 2012 and a leader of Die Linke/The Left in Germany for many years.

“He led the group which Sinn Féin is aligned to in the EU and provided an alternative to the dominant and ruinous austerity policies prevalent on the EU during the period.

“I want to extend my condolences to his family, friends and colleagues on his passing.

“Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam.”
