Northern Ireland’s Polish Consul has lambasted the Parades Commission for dragging the migrant population into the disputed Parkmount Arch parade in Portadown.

Jerome Mullen said allegations that the local migrant community were involved in the recent determination “have been shown to be totally without foundation”.

Unionists last week accused the Parades Commission of performing an “outrageous U-turn” after it reversed a decision that would have allowed a parade for a short distance along the traditionally unionist end of the Garvaghy Road.
