Finucane calls on Nigel Dodds to break silence on North Belfast attack

30 July, 2018


Sinn Féin’s John Finucane has called on North Belfast MP Nigel Dodds to break his silence on the attack on the house of a bereaved mother following threats to leave her home in Oldpark by loyalist paramilitaries. 

John Finucane said: 

“A bereaved mother, whose son died tragically only days ago, has been driven from her home in north Belfast after her home was attacked following threats by men claiming to be from the UFF.

“It is incumbent that local politicians unite in condemnation of these sickening actions and demonstrate political leadership in opposing the actions of paramilitary groups or their surrogates.

“So far the silence of the MP for north Belfast has been deafening.

“This mother has not only tragically lost her son, she has now been driven out and is now unable to wake him from her home. This is totally unacceptable and there is an onus on Nigel Dodds and the leadership of political unionism to unequivocally condemn this disgraceful act.”
