Taylor condemns disgraceful display at Newry Internment bonfire

Ulster Unionist Councillor David Taylor has condemned the organisers of an internment bonfire erected at Parkhead, Newry where a number of items were placed on the bonfire making reference to victims’ campaigner William Frazer and his late father, Bertie Frazer, who was murdered by the IRA.

Councillor Taylor said:

“A multitude of hate crimes have been committed by the organisers of an internment bonfire erected at Parkhead, Newry and they should be roundly condemned for their sickening actions.

“Items placed on the bonfire reference victims’ campaigner William Frazer and his late father Bertie Frazer, who was murdered by the IRA. Other items direct highly offensive remarks towards HM The Queen and the RUC.

“The Frazer family have suffered greatly at the evil hands of Republicanism terrorism and it is completely unacceptable that they should have to tolerate this despicable behaviour.

“These actions highlight that a sinister and threatening mindset continues to prevail within Republicanism and the bonfire organisers should be roundly condemned across the political spectrum.

“I have reported this matter to the PSNI.”
