PSNI campaign continues

Commenting on this afternoon's PSNI raids in Belfast and North Antrim and the PSNI briefing of certain media outlets, Sinn Fein Assembly member Conor Murphy said:

"Last month we predicted that the PSNI Special Branch would engage in na series of timetabled events designed to undermine the peace process.

"Today we witnessed the latest inbstallment in this planned and co-ordinated effort. This is the context within which today's arrests and the inevitable accompanying media briefing form the PSNI has to be seen.

"Events like today reinforce clearly in the minds of the nationalist community just how far the current policing arrangements have to go before we achieve a policing service without the malign influence of Special Branch at its core."
