8 March, 2007


Sinn Féin Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew has branded the arrest of Assembly election candidate Gerry McGeough as outrageous and said that it is an example of the type of political policing that Sinn Féin is determined to end.

Ms Gildernew said:

"Gerry lives openly in the area so there can only be one interpretation put on the decision to arrest him in this way.

"It is an outrageous example of the type of political policing that Sinn Féin are determined to end.

"Gerry should be released immediately and serious questions will be asked about those who directed this operation today." ENDS
