Paul Frew ‘vindicated’ after civil case against him is dismissed

1 Mins read

North Antrim DUP MLA Paul Frew has said he feels vindicated after a civil court case against him was dismissed this morning.

The civil case centred around a 15 year-old girl who was suing Mr Frew for breach of privacy, following comments on social media which were linked to anti-social behaviour in the Ballymena area.

Speaking after today’s judgement Mr Frew said, “I feel totally vindicated by today’s verdict. The court case since it begun in March has been an unsettling time, as I was made feel like a criminal for simply standing up for the community I serve. I would like to thank all those who supported me during this time, not least my family.

There had been serious and sinister anti-social behaviour in Broughshane and Harryville for many months. I had been assisting residents in their efforts to get better policing for the area and tackle this scourge. People were attacked in their homes, food was smeared over property whilst the elderly folk inside could only watch which was deeply upsetting. I was working with, supporting and assisting Police and Community workers on a daily basis at the height of the trouble.

This case arose from my work of standing up for the community. Now that a verdict has been given I will continue to work hard for the people of North Antrim and I will not be deterred from defending the good people of Broughshane and Harryville .”
