Prominent loyalist and victims advocate Willie Frazer says he will return to Magherafelt District Council to express his concern over a plaque erected in the building’s reception in memory of two Sinn Féin councillors who were murdered.

Frazer made the pledge last night after he was denied access to the council building last week.  He had intended to hand in a letter in protest to the plaque however the council’s doors were locked.

In the past Frazer has expressed concern about the memorial plaque for County Derry men Bernard O’Hagan and John Joe Davey, who were shot in the late 80’s and early 90’s while they were councillors in Magherafelt. Frazer, who is the founder and leader of the pressure group, Families Acting for Innocent Relatives (FAIR) told the County Derry Post that he would not be giving up.

“I certainly intend to pursue the issue at future council meetings. When we start something we don’t give up,” he said. See today’s County Derry Post for more.
