Farry says that INLA decommissioning is welcome but belated

Reacting to the confirmation from the IICD that the INLA have decommissioned, Alliance Justice Spokesperson Stephen Farry said: “This is a welcome but obviously very belated move by the INLA.

“Clearly the looming decommissioning deadline has had a sobering effect on residual paramilitary groups holding weapons.

Taking weapons out of circulation is in the interests of everyone in the community. We should never forget that the INLA was a vicious organisation that brought death and misery to many people across these islands and I hope that confirmation of this move is another signal that Northern Ireland is in a position to put its past behind it.”
