Hoax an attempt to increase tension – Gerry Kelly
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has slammed those behind the hoax device this morning in North Belfast, which caused so much disruption to the people of the area.
The North Belfast MLA said:
“North Belfast is already tense because of attempts to create sectarian confrontation without the likes of this activity creating more tension.
“All that those responsible have done is force families from their homes in the early hours of the morning and disrupt people getting to work, school and going about their business.
“Those who left this hoax device have nothing to offer the people of North Belfast except disruption and upheaval. They should come forward and explain their actions.
“It clearly appears that they are trying to increase tension in an already tense situation. They are caught in a time warp and these pointless actions are obviously attempts to make themselves relevant.”
