Two Tier Policing Alive and Well – TUV Newry and Armagh

Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:-

“It would appear the PSNI has learned nothing from its mishandling of the Bobby Storey investigation and the two tier policing which it illustrated.

“Two tier policing is alive and well as the PSNI sets about with vigour the investigation of wholly peaceful anti-Protocol protests. Several of my constituents, within weeks, are in receipt of letters demanding interview.

Unlike in the softly, softly Storey investigation there is no disclosure of ‘evidence’ in advance of interview, just a bald demand to be questioned.

“This discrepancy in approach and the expedition displayed suggests protesting loyalists are viewed as a soft touch, whereas terrorist-glorifying republicans have special status.

“Little wonder the Chief Constable continues to have no respect across loyalist communities.”

ENDS
