NO SHRINE FOR TERRORISTS

On Monday 1 October a delegation from victims group FAIR met with Arlene Foster MLA to discuss the de-listing of the old hospital wing at the former HMP Maze.

There was very little the minister could have done about the listing of the hospital wing as a shrine as the Government had it listed before the Stormont assembly was in post.

What we did discover was that although the building is listed it has to go through the normal procedure of planning permission for it to be turned into a conflict resolution centre and we will be campaigning very hard to stop permission being granted and if by some chance they are allowed to keep this shrine they will have to look at it from a distance.

Obviously the minister was very sympathetic to the fact that as Innocent Victims we do not want it kept as a shrine to terrorists and when it comes to the planning permission stage then that is the time her department and the innocent victims can put a stop to another IRA/SF shrine.
