If three Victims’ Commissioners is sufficient now then why did we need four? – Lunn

Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has criticised the DUP and Sinn Fein after they decided that there was no need for a fourth Victims’ Commissioner after Mike Nesbitt stood down in February, saying if three is sufficient now then why were four originally appointed. The Alliance Party tabled amendments to the legislation that only one Victims’ Commissioner needed to be appointed but they were not accepted

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “The DUP and Sinn Fein originally stated that one Victims’ Commissioner was sufficient, then for whatever reason they appointed four people and yet now they think three Commissioners is enough. When are they going to make up their minds as to how many we need?

“The commission has carried out some excellent work and it has an important role to play.

“Questions must however be asked about why the DUP and Sinn Fein deemed that we needed four Commissioners in the first place, if they think three is sufficient now. If another one stands down will the DUP and Sinn Fein then decide that they only need two of them?

“This whole process was a shambles and it remains so.”
