The East Antrim Assembly Member said: “Its disgraceful that OFMDFM are continuing to delay on appointing a new Victims’ Commissioner.
“The voices of victims must be heard and their needs address. This cannot happen until a new Victims’ Commissioner is appointed.
“One must question whether or not there is a disagreement over the religious affiliation of prospective candidates. If this is the case then the whole appointment process has become a sectarian sham.
“OFMDFM broke their promise to appoint the Victims’ Commissioner before the summer recess, now they continue to be in disarray over this issue.”
