DUP Spokesman on International Development and Cabinet Office
Mr Campbell said,
“Dr Mehaffey was a genuine man who worked tirelessly for his community during very difficult days. He was not afraid to call out evil when he needed to but he was prepared to work for peace with his neighbours when the time was right.
He has left a legacy which will live on for future generations.
My sincere sympathies to his family circle as they mourn his passing. They do so in the context of being able to celebrate his life and achievements.”
