Election poster theft will not deter Sinn Féin in election campaign – Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said the latest theft of an election billboard backing John Finucane will not deter the his campaign in North Belfast.

The North Belfast MLA was speaking after a billboard belonging to John Finucane’s campaign was removed by a hooded man.

Carál Ní Chuilín said: 

“John Finucane election posters were removed last week from lamp-posts near the Abbey Centre.

“In the early hours of this morning a billboard was removed by a hooded man from the corner of the Limestone and Antrim Roads.

“A pattern of threats and intimidation is emerging in this contest and this latest action is another attempt to derail the democratic process.

“Our party has made a complaint to the police about this criminal act.

“Sinn Féin has been engaging with people on the doorsteps across the city.

“The response has been positive as people recognise the need to deliver Irish solutions to Westminster’s Brexit agenda. 

“The theft of these election posters will not deter Sinn Féin in this election campaign.”
