Doherty comments on latest hoax bomb attack against Eugene McMenamin

14 January, 2005

West Tyrone MP Pat Doherty has challenged those behind the latest hoax bomb attack on Eugene Mc Menamin to explain to what on earth they are trying to achieve.

"Everyone has the right to their political opinion and Eugene Mc Menamin and his family should not be the subject of such a squalid campaign of intimidation.

"At a political level, people are at a complete loss as to what the people behind these attacks on Eugene Mc Menamin and other DPP members are hoping to achieve -

"In terms of nationalist/republican demands for the creation of a policing service which is free from partisan political control, accountable, representative and all-Ireland in structure, these attacks are not only futile, but also completely counter-productive.

"They divert the focus of attention away from the core issue of the continued control of and manipulation of policing in the six counties by an assortment of securocrat agencies." ENDS
