McCausland in no position to criticise - Ó hOisín

11 June, 2015 - by Cathal Ó hOisín

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has said Nelson McCausland is in no position to criticise any Executive minister on their handling of departments. 

Mr O hOisín said; 

"It is a bit rich for Nelson McCausland, who was mired in controversy during his time as a minister, to criticise anyone. 

"During his own time in office he was constantly criticised by his scrutiny committee, was the subject of a full committee inquiry, and was dogged by so much controversy that the DUP removed him as a minister. 

"He has a responsibility as chair of a committee to step outside of such overt party politicking but his remarks today smack of a crass and ill-conceived attempt at payback for being removed from his ministerial position."
