IRA returns to bomb Newry Courthouse

23 February 2010

Statement by TUV Leader Jim Allister QC:-

"Tonight's bomb attack on Newry Courthouse, by whichever IRA flag of convenience organisation, apes the type of attack on the judicial process for which Old Bailey Bomber, Gerry Kelly, set the template. Now, that court bomber sits at the Cabinet table poised to meddle in policing and justice. How long before some urge such elevation for this new generation of Provo trained bombers and terrorists?

"Having certainly learned the tactics from IRA/Sinn Fein did they also use explosives supposedly decommissioned and benefit from Provo expertise?

"Ever practised in using violence to promote their political agenda, we can now expect perverted calls by Sinn Fein, supported by the Secretary of State and others who should know better, to speed the devolution of policing and justice in response to such violence. Not that anyone should think empowering IRA/Sinn Fein, by bringing policing and justice within their terrorist-inclusive Executive, will do anything to defeat republican terrorism, or any other brand of terror."
