'Statements to solicitors is not what is needed'

Spotted by the Brainster. Responding to the news that a former candidate for Sinn Fein in the Assembly elections was in the bar the night her brother was killed, Catherine McCartney “challenge[d] her to give a statement to the police or the Police Ombudsman”, saying – “Giving statements to solicitors is not really what is needed. The statement should be given to people with the proper investigative skills who can help to bring those responsible to court.”
