Eastwood says New IRA 'apology' devoid of any humanity

SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood MLA has responded to a statement released from the New IRA by calling out its insincerity and lack of humanity towards Lyra and the entire community of Derry.

Mr Eastwood commented:

"This morning's statement from the New IRA is an absolute disgrace and shows no remorse for the death of Lyra McKee. 

"Their so called instruction to their 'volunteers' to 'take the utmost care' when engaging in violence is utterly sickening and devoid of any humanity. They must recognise the glaringly obvious fact they are not wanted by the people of the North. It is time to disband. 

"The murder of Lyra McKee must not be in vain. Together, political leaders must come together to re-engage in a talks process to fill the vacuum that currently gives groups like this too much oxygen."
