Dickson outraged by paramilitary show of strength in West Belfast

Alliance Justice spokesperson, Stewart Dickson MLA, has condemned the appearance of several individuals in paramilitary outfits at the funeral of republican Tony Catney in West Belfast on Wednesday.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I am outraged that this paramilitary show of strength took place in Belfast.

“This type of display has no place in our society as we work to move Northern Ireland forward and build a safe and shared community. These types of images should be consigned to the past; it is simply unacceptable for individuals to engage in this type of activity.

“I understand that the Police mounted a small operation to monitor this funeral. I hope that they will investigate this paramilitary display and take action against any individual who has broken the law.”
