Time to end the Sugden silence

Following a period of extended silence from the Justice Minister on the RHI scandal, Ulster Unionist Justice spokesperson, Doug Beattie MC MLA, said:

“The silence from the Justice Minister cannot be justified. At least Sinn Fein have said something even if it only is to demonstrate weakness in the face of the DUP’s gross incompetence which will result in every man, woman and child enduring further cuts to public service funding.

“But the Justice Minister, who holds a pivotal role in the Executive, has said nothing. No statements, no tweets, no Facebook messages. As her colleague, Finance Minister Máirtín Ó Muilleoir famously said ‘none, zilch, nada, nothing’.

“I have huge regard for the Justice Minister and understand the difficult role she has as an independent MLA – but to have no opinion on the RHI fiasco makes her irrelevant within the Executive and to prop up an Executive with no public confidence makes her part of the problem.”
