PSNI and politicans unaware of ‘Protestant expulsions’

THE PSNI in Londonderry has told the Sentinel it does not discuss the security of individuals after the paper asked if the force had received reports of loyalist expulsions of Protestants from the city over recent weeks.

The Sentinel received an unconfirmed report that a number of individuals from a Protestant background had been forced out of the city.

Unionist and loyalist sources, when contacted, said they were unaware of any such expulsions.

A spokesperson for the PSNI stated: “We do not discuss the security of any individual, individuals or groups. However, if we receive information that a person’s life may be at risk we will inform the relevant persons accordingly.

“We never ignore anything which may put an individual at risk. No inference should be drawn from this.”
