Murder of Prison Officer in Northern Ireland

The National Executive Committee condemn the brutal senseless murder of a professional Prison Officer from HMP Maghaberry.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and colleagues.

This outrageous murder brings back a sense of reality to the dangers that Prison Officers face in protecting communities and the general public.

I am sure every right minded person will be appalled by this callous act and stand together against the tiny minority who wish to drag Northern Ireland backwards.


Yours sincerely



General Secretary
