Sinn Féin - On Your Side

IMC Report has no credibility

24 May, 2005

Responding to the latest report by the IMC which was published today in Belfast, Sinn Féin Assembly member for South Belfast Alex Maskey said:

"The IMC was set up at the behest of the unionists and is the tool of the British securocrats. It operates outside the terms of the Good Friday Agreement and has no positive role to play in the development of the political process. It was created and has been used to discriminate against Sinn Féin and our electorate.

"This report like the previous reports is based solely on the information provided to the IMC by the securocrats. It like previous reports has little or no credibility and is neither impartial, fair nor balanced.

"Sinn Féin will continue to challenge the ongoing role of the IMC in the political process and continue to vigorously oppose the sanctions which have been imposed by the British government upon our electorate in the wake of previous reports from this body." ENDS
