POA condemn cowardly attack in Northern Ireland

The POA leadership have condemned a cowardly and disgraceful attack on a Prison Officer in Northern Ireland.

Early indicators are emerging that an explosive device was placed under a vehicle which was then driven by a Prison Officer. The device exploded and has reportedly caused serious leg injuries resulting in hospitalisation.

The POA wish our member a speedy and successful recovery from this cowardly attack and hope that those responsible for this disgusting attack are caught swiftly and brought to justice.

The POA believe that all political parties should condemn this outrageous attack on a Prison Officer.
