Sinn Féin Councillor's Home Attacked

5 August, 2003


Lagan Valley Sinn Féin Representative Councillor Paul Butler has said he is in no doubt that loyalists were responsible for last nights attack on his home.

Cllr. Butler said:

"At around 11pm last night some sort of device was thrown from a passing car at the front of my home. This is the same address to which loyalists recently posted a bullet.

"I have no doubt that this attack is a response to Sinn Féin's ongoing efforts to highlight sectarian attacks in Lisburn and Dunmurry and our campaign against discrimination on Lisburn City Council.

" While these attacks are clearly very worrying, particularly for my family, I will not be deterred from continuing in my work in Lagan Valley." ENDS
