murphy35Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has stated that Arlene Foster should stand aside to facilitate an independent investigation into the RHI fiasco. The Newry & Armagh MLA told Newry Times, “The DUP are in denial about the mounting public outrage relating to the RHI scheme and the serious allegations of incompetence, corruption and abuse. “Revelations that Arlene Foster had written to banks asking them to support the RHI scheme is further evidence of the need for an independent, time-framed, robust and transparent investigation into the whole RHI debacle,” he insisted.

He added, “This is what is required to restore public confidence in the Assembly and the political institutions.”
