Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Evening Herald headline - complete and utter lies

26 June, 2006

A Sinn Féin spokesperson described today's headline in the Evening Herald as complete and utter lies. The three men from Ballinamore, who pleaded guilty to assault charges in the town last year, are not members or election workers for Sinn Féin and have never been. This fact was made clear to the Evening Herald when the story broke last year and once again this morning. The fact that this lie was printed highlights once again that this newspaper has absolutely no regard for the truth.

"Sinn Féin will be raising this matter with the National Union of Journalists and the Managing Editor of Independent Newspapers. We have also handed the matter over to the party's solicitors." ENDS
