North Antrim Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay is to raise the status of unionist paramilitary ceasefires with the local PSNI Commander following UDA bomb attacks in Ahoghill last week.
Daithí McKay said:
“I will be meeting with the local PSNI Commander in the coming days about a number of issues in the constituency.
“I will be requesting an assessment of the status of Unionist paramilitary ceasefires in light of the PSNI’s confirmation that the UDA is responsible for bomb attacks in Ahoghill last week.
“It has been well established that Unionist paramilitaries are involved in criminal activity, intimidation, extortion and drug dealing in the North Antrim constituency.
“The confirmation that the UDA is responsible for bomb attacks in the area, including those in Ahoghill recently, is only the latest evidence that unionist paramilitaries are active and a current threat to society.
“I will be seeking an assessment of current status of ceasefires and assurances from the PSNI Commander he is putting proper resources into combatting this criminality and protecting the community.
