Flags at Craigavon Hospital Should Be Removed Immediately - O'Dowd

Published: 20 June, 2018

Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has called for the immediate removal of flags at the entrance of Craigavon Area Hospital.

He said:

"A hospital is not the place for flags of any sort. Those who have placed the Israeli flag at the entrance of Craigavon Area Hospital are seeking to intimidate those, including people within their own community, visiting sick relatives and friends in one of our main hospitals as well as members of staff caring for sick relatives and friends.

"They should be removed immediately.

"Both myself and Councillor Paul Duffy are meeting the PSNI this week and will raise this.

"In the meantime we would call on all those with influence in the community to seek immediate removal."
