IRA flags at benefits office an '˜attempt to intimidate'
Republicans who placed IRA flags at a jobs and benefits office in Belfast are deliberately trying to intimidate people, it has been claimed.
Flags from the IRA’s D-Company have appeared on the office at the Falls Road.
DUP Councillor Frank McCoubrey said those responsible were trying to “antagonise and intimidate”.
“This is a government building. Flags promoting a terrorist organisation should not be on the building or within its curtilage,” said McCoubrey.
“The flags are a disgrace in and of themselves but to erect them on government property is nothing more than an attempt antagonise and intimidate. I will certainly work to ensure the flags are removed.”
