TUV leader Jim Allister is hosting the third annual event marking European Day for Victims of Terrorism at a special reception at Stormont.

Every year since the Madrid bombings in 2004 the European Union has dedicated one day in March as a Memorial Day to the victims of terrorist attacks.

Mr Allister said that after he was elected as an MLA he introduced the event to Stormont.

The TUV leader said yesterday: “The event will take the form of a minute of silence in memory of murdered victims, followed by some victims telling their stories so that we might hear some of the untold accounts of the consequences of terrorism, both republican and loyalist. I am grateful to Alban Maginness MLA and Mike Nesbitt MLA for joining me in sponsoring this event.”

He added: “Given the events of recent days this event has become even more relevant.”

The event takes place at 10.30am on Monday at the Senate Chamber in Parliament Buildings.
