McDonough Brown: Formal investigation must run its course

Alliance Councillor Emmet McDonough Brown has said a formal investigation must be allowed to run its course, after Police used CS spray during a junior Orange Order parade in South Belfast.

He said: “The facts of what happened and how it happened on Tuesday night have yet to be established. No good can come of jumping to conclusions at this point, while a thorough investigation is on-going.

“With tensions around the incident running high in the community, I don’t understand why elected representatives – including the First Minister – are rushing to get involved when the facts remain unclear.”
