Killers are the same as drug dealers – Gerry Kelly
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has slammed those responsible for the murder of Kevin Kearney in North Belfast.
Gerry Kelly said:
“The murder of Kevin Kearney is to be condemned outright. The pseudo ‘republican’ group that carried out the killing have no support whatsoever with the local community.
“In fact it is common knowledge that they have within their ranks people who have taken back handers from drug dealers so that they can continue peddling drugs. This makes them the same as the drug dealers who bring death and destruction to the community.
“Masquerading under the name republican does not stop people from seeing these groups for what they really are. I would call on anyone who has any information on this killing to bring it forward to the PSNI.
“The people of North Belfast have suffered enough throughout the years without the blight of these maverick, self-serving, hypocritical groups bringing death to the community.”
