Can you help police identify these people over Belfast Anti-Internment Parade disorder

Police have released images of people they wish to speak with in relation to serious public disorder which broke out in north Belfast last summer following an Anti-Internment Parade.

Fourteen images of individuals have been released of people the PSNI would like to talk to in connection with their ongoing investigations into the disorder in Rosapenna Street on Sunday August 9 2015.

A number of missiles and petrol bombs were thrown at police and water cannon was used to manage the disorder.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Reid said: "Over the course of the day, there was a small number of people in the area who were intent on causing disorder and attacking police officers. 

"Unfortunately a number of officers sustained minor injuries.

“To date 10 people have been arrested and charged for offences relating to this disorder."

It comes after police released a set of images in relation to the serious public disorder which took place on Monday July 13 2015.

Five of these people have been identified.

DCI Reid added: “We are extremely grateful for the support and assistance from members of the public in assisting us with our investigations.

“We are committed to identifying those involved in all of the disorder last summer and we will be relentless in our pursuit in order to bring these offenders before the Courts.

“By releasing these images I am hopeful that the wider community will help us identify these individuals. It is in everybody’s interest – as well as in the interest of justice - that those responsible are dealt with appropriately and I would urge anyone who may have any information to bring it forward.

“I also encourage the persons within these pictures to contact police directly – in doing so they will minimise the impact on themselves, their family and their community.”

Anyone who may be able to identify any of these individuals or provide any information about them such as their name, address or age is urged to contact detectives at Strandtown Police Station on 02890 901734.

This number is staffed Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm, an answer machine will be in operation outside of these office opening hours. 

Detectives can also be contacted by email on

Alternatively, if anyone would prefer to provide information to the independent charity Crimestoppers they can speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
