Father slams unionist stance

A campaigning father today accused unionist politicians of "hypocrisy" over their comments on the murder of Robert McCartney.

Raymond McCord, whose son Raymond Jnr was killed by the UVF in 1997, said unionists had failed to take a stand on loyalist paramilitary murders.

He asked: "Who among unionist politicians is calling for the murderers of my son to be handed over?

"Who is calling for sanctions against the PUP?

"Their demands on the McCartney murder are nothing more than hypocrisy."

Mr McCord, a north Belfast Protestant, claimed unionists have let down victims of loyalist violence in their communities.

Raymond McCord Jnr was beaten to death by a UVF gang in November 1997.
