DUP Leader Rt. Hon. Arlene Foster MLA said,
“I welcome the Combined Loyalist Statement which opposes and condemns all forms of criminality. It stands in stark contrast to Gerry Adams’ latest justification for violence.
It is time for those who use criminality, to get off the backs of their communities. Their objectives are not political but rather power and profit. I support the police in putting them out of business and behind bars once and for all.
We have and will continue to help those who want to transition into politics. Violence has no place in our society. We commend those who are leading and working hard to help move their communities forward.
We want to build a Northern Ireland for the next generation which is free from violence and where no community is left behind.”
