Following the appearance of a ‘Soldier F’ banner in Limavady overnight, Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald said:

“It is past time action was taken regarding these banners, and also Parachute Regiment flags, paramilitary flags and emblems, many of which are illegally erected.

“The failure of statutory agencies to act is facilitating behaviour, some of which is criminal and which divides people and intimidates communities.

“This inaction is an indictment of the authorities and the failure to uphold the law in the face of bully boys.

“I have engaged with the PSNI, the Department for Infrastructure, and Causeway Coast and Glens Council regarding these banners and other related issues over recent days and weeks.

“It is a source of great frustration for ourselves as elected representatives but also for the communities we represent that no action is being taken, and these actions continue to go unchallenged and unhindered by statutory agencies.

“Our Sinn Féin colleagues in Belfast City Council are exploring legal action to force the statutory bodies responsible to step up to the plate.

“We will continue to explore all avenues to challenge this lack of accountability.”
