Ulster Unionist Party Leader Robin Swann has said that victims are being ignored following the decision to reappoint the Victims Commissioner for a further twelve months.
Robin Swann MLA said:
“This is an appalling decision and will come as a further slap in the face for innocent victims of the Troubles.
“This goes against the wishes that have been aired by victims. They have not been listened to in the past and they are being ignored now.
“A twelve month reappointment does not look like a vote of confidence. This announcement will cause concern that the Northern Ireland Office still isn’t listening.”
