Law Society Condemns Attack On Senior Police Officer
The Law Society of Northern Ireland condemns
the attempted murder of Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell as an attack on
the Rule of Law and an attempt to drag Northern Ireland back to the dark days
of our troubled past.
The President of the Law Society, Mr Brian
approach the Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement it is reprehensible that
there are still people in our midst who would attempt to kill a police officer
and drag us back to our troubled past.
The attack on
John Caldwell, when he was giving of his time to help our young people, is an
attack on all of us and must be called out for what it is – an attack on
Democracy and the Rule of Law.
Society of Northern Ireland, and the solicitor profession we represent, hold
John Caldwell and his family in our thoughts and prayers at this time.”
