‘Martin McGuinness set the benchmark for good government’ - O’Neill
Speaking in Stormont today, Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Michelle O’Neill commented:
“Martin McGuinness set the benchmark for good government and the fair and equal treatment of all citizens. He led by example.
“Any attack on his integrity in government is spurious. It’s disgraceful and it will be robustly challenged by our party.
“The comments made before the RHI Public Inquiry that Martin McGuinness had prior knowledge of a whistle blower will be examined by the inquiry. However, Sinn Féin is confident that our position and the position of Martin McGuinness will be fully vindicated. Martin McGuinness is no longer here to defend himself.
“I can also tell you that this allegation is subject to an ongoing and separate legal action.”
