DUP Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart has welcomed a police operation against dissident republicans in Lurgan which has led to three arrests.
Carla Lockhart said:
“Arrests are just the first stage and no one has been brought before the courts but I commend the PSNI on this operation. I understand this operation is in relation to historical dissident republican activity.
I commend the police for their ongoing commitment to tackling terrorism in all its forms. Those with a warped mindset who justify terror need removed from our streets.
This historical case is also a reminder to those who break the law that there will be no ‘sell by’ date on justice. Whether it was the PIRA or whatever variant from that organisation, where crime was committed, investigations will continue.
As a society we have moved forward greatly, and it is important that those who seek to drag us back are brought to justice. They offer nothing but hurt and harm, destruction and division.”
