Spamount attack on PSNI officer condemned

13 May, 2008

Sinn Féin West Tyrone MP Pay Doherty has condemned the attack last night on an off-duty PSNI officer in the West Tyrone town of Spamount.

Mr Doherty said:

"I utterly condemn this attack. It is wrong and such attacks serve no useful purpose.

"Politics on the island of Ireland have changed absolutely and irreversibly.

"There have been enormous political achievements over the last decade. The Sinn Fein Peace Process strategy and strategy for Irish Unity has been at the heart of taking us forward.

"No single attack or incident such as this is going to drag us backwards." ENDS
