The Ulster Unionist Party’s Justice Spokesperson, Doug Beattie MC MLA, has condemned an attempt to murder Police officers in Craigavon around midnight on Friday night.
Doug Beattie MC MLA said:
“Again the people of Upper Bann have faced disruption as republican terrorists attempted to murder police officers in the Tullygally area of Craigavon.
“It is absolutely contemptible that these pathetic individuals believe that maiming and murdering police officers - or anyone else who might get in their way - will promote their deranged cause in any way. They are nothing more than self promoting psychopaths who thrive on chaos and anarchy.
“In the meantime innocent men, women and children have their lives disrupted with little regards from the terrorists. It is clear they care nothing about the hard working people of Craigavon and therefore should be treated with contempt by those very same people.
“In the meantime I thank the Armed Forces, in the form of their EOD team, and the police who deployed to the scene of this explosion to ensure that the community was protected and kept safe.”
