Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Micheál Martin, T.D. Condemns Derry Killing25 February 2010
The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Micheál Martin T.D., has today condemned the paramilitary-style killing of a man last night on the outskirts ofDerrycity. The Minister commented:
“I condemn this brutal murder unreservedly. The shocking manner in which the remains of the deceased were left on the road side is especially reprehensible. My sympathy is with the family and friends of the deceased at this terrible time.
Their grief reminds us that there can be no possible justification for this disgusting killing. Those who carry out such acts speak for no one and offer nothing but fear and hatred. I stand with the people ofDerryin demanding that these criminal activities cease immediately. Violence or the threat of violence have no place in our democratic society
Anyone with any information relating to this killing should report it to the police.”
