Unanimous Support For Letter to Injured Detective
Members of Mid Ulster District Council were last night united in their response to the shooting of DCI John Caldwell on Wednesday in Omagh.
Speaking at the start of the February Council meeting, Council Chair, Councillor Córa Corry said,
“I would like to extend my solidarity to John and his family and wish him a full recovery. Today we have seen all parties and all communities coming together to condemn this attack, people are outraged and rightly so. There must be no place for such attacks by the enemies of our peace.”
Councillor Corry then proposed that the Council write to John and his family, condemning the attack and sending its solidarity and well wishes to them.
Following condemnation of the attack from all parties as one voice, the proposal was seconded by Councillor Gavin Bell and received unanimous support from all Elected Members.
