Kelly’s “Informed Warning”

Admin —  January 7, 2014

Commenting on an “informed warning” for Gerry Kelly over his obstruction of the police when he jumped on the bonnet of a landrover, TUV leader Jim Allister said:

“This is political policing in action. While flag protesters are pursued by a special Public Order Enquiry Team and subjected to charges under the Serious Crime Act, the authorities pander to Bonnet Kelly with a meaningless “informed warning”, something which amounts to nothing.

“This will do nothing to restore loyalist faith in policing, but, rather, it will perpetuate the present disconnect.”

Statement by North Antrim MLA Jim Allister:

“Once again the PSNI have brought William Frazer before the courts for alleged breach of bail and once again they have failed to have him remanded. The PSNI’s harassment of Mr Frazer has to stop and stop now. Apart from anything else these court appearances are a scandalous waste of public money.

“The repeated, failed attempts of the PSNI to have Mr Frazer returned to custody would be laughable were the issues involved not so serious. This political policing must stop immediately.  It is doing huge damage to the standing of the PSNI within the Unionist community, particularly when they compare it with the attitude adopted towards Gerry Kelly”.
