Threats should be lifted immediately - Sheehan

14 January, 2017 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has called on threats against a member of the family of a man and woman viciously attacked in their Turf Lodge home this week to be immediately lifted.

The West Belfast MLA said:

"It beggars belief that threats have been issued against a family member of a couple who were shot several times in their own home in Turf Lodge earlier this week.

“It is despicable that this man and woman were shot in their own home in the first place. They have done absolutely nothing wrong unlike the armed gang who shot them.

“It piles insult on top of injury for those responsible to issue threats against a relative of the victims. 

“Those responsible have nothing to offer this community and I call on them to lift the threat immediately and get off the back of the people of Turf Lodge.”
