Ulster Unionist Assembly Member for South Belfast Michael McGimpsey has condemned the individuals responsible for the multiple security alerts that continue to cause major disruption in and around the Belfast area.
In a statement Mr. McGimpsey said, “The cause of the recent security alerts in Belfast is nothing more than an unrepresentative group of criminals who have caused maximum disruption to innocent men, women, and children. Society as a whole is disgusted by these reprehensible individuals.”
“These disgraceful acts of intimidation have disrupted not only residents, but also the wider Belfast area bringing rail and road services to a standstill for some hours.”
“Everyone in society has a duty to assist the police with their investigations of such unwelcomed criminals. We urge anyone with any information to contact the PSNI.”
