Milnes not guilt verdict indictment of PSNI

3 April, 2006

Sinn Féin West Belfast MLA Michael Ferguson, who has backed the campaign for justice, has welcomed the not guilty verdict in the case of local man Kieran Milnes today and said that the verdict is an indictment of the PSNI handling of this case.

Mr Ferguson said:

"This is the right result. Kieran was not guilty. I‚m sure this result is a huge relief to Kieran and his family.

"It was a huge injustice when he was originally found guilty and forced to fight the legal system.

"The approach of the PSNI to this case was a disgrace. The case against him was maliciously pursued and based on pure fantasy. The not guilty verdict in this case is an indictment of the PSNI." ENDS
