Newry éirígí spokesman to contest charges

éirígí’s Newry spokesperson Stephen Murney has said that he will contest charges brought against him by the PSNI at a court hearing due to be held tomorrow, Friday 27th April.
In September Murney was arrested and claims he was beaten by the PSNI during a security operation in the Derrybeg estate. Stephen says he had been in the area in response to requests from local residents who were, he claimed, “extremely concerned and alarmed by the PSNI’s aggressive behaviour during a very heavy-handed operation which saw local homes being raided, residents being harassed on the street and cars searched.”
Murney added, “As I and other members of the local community remonstrated with the PSNI over their behaviour, PSNI personnel singled me out and then assaulted and arrested me.”
Stephen was taken to Armagh PSNI barracks where he was charged with offences including resisting arrest and assault.
