Lunn disappointed at McCrea comments on HET

Lagan Valley Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has expressed disappointment at the unwarranted attack on the Historical Enquiries Team by UUP MLA Basil McCrea and his assertion that there is an imbalance in the HET’s work.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “I doubt if Mr McCrea is speaking on behalf of the unionist population when he warns of unrest if the trend of loyalist convictions continues. Most right-thinking unionists will be glad to see criminals being brought to justice, whatever their background.

“This is a strange attitude for a member of the Policing Board to adopt and as a current Chair of a District Policing Partnership, I have every confidence in the PSNI in terms of either their current or historic enquiries to do their work without bias or favour. It appears that Mr McCrea, in common with the PUP, does not share this confidence and that is disappointing.”
