Bishop Noel Treanor’s statement in respect of the injured PSNI officer in North Belfast

Statement issued on behalf of Bishop Noel Treanor in respect of the injured PSNI officer in North Belfast this evening.

On behalf of the Diocese of Down and Connor, I denounce and condemn in the strongest possible terms the deplorable attack this evening on a police officer in North Belfast. This attack upon a member of the police force which serves the entire community is alien to the widespread desire, hope and prayer for stability and peace in a shared society. Destructive and divisive violence serves no one. I assure the injured police officer, his family and the PSNI of my continued prayerful support at this difficult time.
