Pensioners Death Condemned

30 April, 2012 - by Cathal Ó hOisín

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has said that the burglar who attacked a pensioner in his home causing his death must be caught before he can strike again.

Mr Ó hOisín said 

“First of all I would like to express my condolences to the family of the pensioner killed today in protecting his home from a burglar.  It is essential that anyone with the smallest piece of information make it available to the PSNI so that he can be caught before he causes more hurt.

“Pensioners need to be able to feel safe within their homes yet again we have seen elderly people being targeted.  Communities need to come together to protect their elderly and vulnerable neighbours and root out those who prey upon them.”
