Have your say

Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has raised concerns about an alleged attempt by the PSNI to recruit a local woman as an informer.

Mr McCartney, the vice chair of the Justice committee said; “Sinn Féin has met with the PSNI to voice our concerns and register our strong disapproval over an attempt to pressurise this woman into providing information.

“On the advice of Sinn Féin the person concerned has contacted her solicitor to register a complaint and this is a matter which will be investigated by the Police Ombudsman.”
