Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has demanded answers and reassurance for those affected by a massive security breach that saw the personal details of hundreds of people passed to loyalist paramilitaries.

The party’s Victims spokesperson described the breach as shocking and is now seeking an urgent meeting with the PSNI Chief Constable and the Police Ombudsman.

“This scale and nature of this breach is shocking and will cause huge concern to those affected,” Linda Dillon commented.

“I am seeking an urgent discussion with both the Chief Constable and the Ombudsman and I will be demanding a rigorous investigation into this scandal.

“People deserve answers and they need to know that measures will be taken to ensure this never happens again. Those affected also need reassurance that whatever steps are required to ensure their safety are put in place.”
