Statement from the Ulster Unionist Party Leader Robin Swann MLA
Robin Swann MLA said:
“I repeat what I said in 2017. We have not asked for the support of paramilitary organisations nor do we want the backing of organisations still engaged in paramilitary or criminal activity.
“Our position hasn`t changed and remains unequivocal. There is no excuse for the continuing existence of paramilitary organisations in the year 2019 which inflict pain and suffering on families and communities and the quicker that they disband the better.”
