Boyle condemns abduction and vicious beating of Strabane man

11 August, 2017 - by Michaela Boyle

Commenting on the news that a 23 year old man had been abducted and viscously beaten in Strabane last night local Sinn Féin MLA Michaela Boyle said:

“Regardless of whatever reasons are being used to justify this attack there can be absolutely no justification given for subjecting this young man to such a terrifying and brutal ordeal.

“As with two equally despicable pipe-bomb attacks carried out against local people in Strabane in recent week, people of the town are shocked and horrified at hearing about what happened here last night.

 “Such actions do not only have a devastating impact on the victim and the victim’s family but they diminish us all as a wider community.

 “Those involved in last night’s and other recent attacks need to heed the will of the people in community for all such squalid attacks to end."
