Martina Anderson’s comments on Victims’ Payment Scheme are ‘deluded nonsense’ - Beattie

The Ulster Unionist Party’s Justice Spokesperson, Doug Beattie MC MLA, has described a tweet by Sinn Fein MLA Martina Anderson on the long-awaited Victims’ Payment Scheme, as ‘deluded nonsense.’   

Doug Beattie MC MLA said:

“Tweets like this confirm the complete lack of integrity from Sinn Fein. Having spent years denying the rights of innocent victims to a pension, and followed that up by disobeying the law, we now have this piece of deluded nonsense from Martina Anderson.  

“Sinn Fein is clearly so committed to justifying the murderous criminality of the IRA which murdered and injured so many innocent people, that it is prepared to continue to slur its victims. They are without shame and demonstrate an appalling lack of humanity.

“Many of the people who will benefit from this scheme will be the innocent victims of the criminal organisation of which Martina Anderson was a member.  

“She either does not understand the system or is attempting to create confusion by deliberately refusing to face facts. Innocent victims deserve better than this.”
