McCann appeals for people to come forward to assist investigation
Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has appealed for people to come forward and assist the investigation into the murder of Christopher Meli in west Belfast.
Ms. McCann said,
“The brutal killing of Christopher Meli has caused deep shock and hurt in the Greater Colin community.
“The huge turnout at a vigil last night highlights the support from this community for the Meli family.
“Community leaders and I met with the PSNI today to discuss the tragic killing of Christopher Meli at the weekend and the progress of the ongoing murder investigation.
“I impressed upon local PSNI commanders the need for a thorough investigation and to keep the Meli family informed at all stages.
“I am appealing to anyone in the community who has any information about the assault on Christopher and his friend Ryan Morris to urgently come forward to the PSNI and assist the investigation.
“The police investigation should be supported by the whole community and no one should do anything which may hinder perpetrators being brought before a court of law.”
