Arrest of Kerry Sinn Fein Director of Elections is an outrageous interference in the political process
Sinn Fein Councillor Martin Ferris has described the arrest of the party's Director of Elections for Kerry North as an outrageous interference in the political process. Cllr Ferris:
``Over the last number of months we have seen ongoing attempts by all of the political parties to engage in negative campaigning against Sinn Fein.
``Without any evidence, and despite Sinn Fein publicly stating that we are entirely against vigilantism in all forms, we have seen the publication of unfounded and unsubstantiated allegations against the party.
``This mornings arrest of the Sinn Fein Director of Elections for Kerry North is an outrageous interference in the political process and is part of this same campaign.
``He should be released immediately.''
