Sinn Féin representatives invited to speak to PSNI over Bobby Storey funeral attendance

The PSNI has written to a number of individuals, including Sinn Féin representatives, asking them to present for an interview as part of investigations in the funeral of Bobby Storey in Belfast.

A spokesperson for Sinn Féin has said that the representatives who received the letters will “contact the police and co-operate with the investigation”.

Stormont Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill was in attendance at the funeral, as were other senior party representatives including leader Mary Lou McDonald TD and Pearse Doherty TD.

Sinn Féin had previously defended the large numbers that attended the cemetery for the funeral, but last week O’Neill admitted that Stormant public health messaging had been undermined by her attendance.
