'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.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
