East Antrim MLA Gordon Lyons has welcomed the announcement there will be a review of the decision not to prosecute 24 individuals reported by the PSNI in relation to the Bobby Storey Funeral.
The DUP MLA said,
"The original decision not to prosecute did not make sense to anyone. The Covid regulations were clear and obvious to virtually every single person in Northern Ireland and there were no issues raised at the time of Bobby Storey's funeral about either clarity or consistency.
I welcome this swift move from the PPS and hope this review can move more quickly than it has taken every other step of this process to conclude."
