Attack on Turkish barbershop wrong

14 June, 2015 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has said that the attack on a barbershop where the man accused of killing Eamonn Magee worked was wrong and does nothing to enhance the memory of young boxer.

 Ms. McCann said,

 “Attacking the business where the man accused of murdering Eamonn Magee worked will not bring him justice but only causes further hardship for the local community.

 “I visited the owners this morning who are shocked and dismayed at the attack and I am sure the local community will rally behind this business to ensure that it continues to provide a service to the local community.

 “I would urge those involved to stop targeting an entire community because someone of the same nationality has been charged with Eamonn’s murder.

 “If people want to see justice for Eamonn Magee they should cooperate with the PSNI inquiry so that whoever murdered him is brought to justice.

 “Likewise if people have information on this attack they should also bring it forward to the PSNI.“
