Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:
“Co-First Minister Robinson’s announcement that he is prepared to consider immunity for terrorists is not surprising given that he has accepted self-confessed IRA commander McGuinness as a suitable partner in government. However, it is none the less shocking and deeply offensive to victims.
“In spite of what the media may claim, the most common demand I hear from victims is for justice. Immunity would deny them that. It is therefore totally acceptable.
“With no danger of prosecution it also opens the door to the possibility of terrorists glorying in their bloody deeds.
“Given what the DUP leader has said today many will conclude that the Attorney General’s comments were designed to make this proposal sound a little more reasonable.”
