Saoradh Statement on Expulsion & Resignations in Belfast

PRESS RELEASE – STATEMENT FROM THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE OF SAORADH 27/6/17

Saoradh express disappointment at recent resignations from the Party following the dismissal of Harry Fitzsimons, the former Belfast Chairperson. Mr Fitzsimons has been afforded due process in accordance with the Party Constitution, including the right to appeal the decision to dismiss which was authorised by the Party’s National Executive. Mr Fitzsimons did not notify the Party of his intention to appeal.

Saoradh investigates all matters, including that of its members’ conduct, which comes to the attention of the Party, impartially and with respect to the member’s rights in accordance with the Party’s constitution.

To conclude, Saoradh will not be distracted from the revolutionary path it has embarked upon; be it by the deliberate opportunism of sections of the media or by the naive or deliberate actions of individuals.

Ends.
