Chief Constable has serious questions to answer on DUP fundraiser – Kelly

29 September, 2017 - by Gerry Kelly

 Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said that Chief Constable George Hamilton has serious questions to answer about reports that he attended a DUP fundraiser in Ballymena last night.

Gerry Kelly said:

“Reports today on social media that the PSNI Chief Constable attended a DUP fundraising event are a matter of deep concern.

“While the Chief Constable does have to engage with people right across the community attendance at a DUP fundraiser would be a clear conflict of interest.

“The Chief Constable needs to provide an explanation to the public about the reports he attended a party political fundraiser.

“There is an onus on the Chief Constable and his office to act, and to be seen to act, with rigorous impartiality on behalf of all in the community.”
