Maginnis human rights move slammed

Sinn Féin equality spokesperson Conor Murphy has reacted angrily to news that former UDR major and UUP MP Ken Maginnis has been shortlisted for a job as a Human Rights Commissioner in the Six Counties.

``One of the key faults of the current Human Rights Commission is the underrepresentation of nationalists among its commissioners,'' said Murphy. ``How the British government expects to instil confidence in the Human Rights Commission among the nationalist community by appointing Maginnis, a former senior member of an organisation that existed to attack the human rights of an entire community, is beyond me.''
