People urged to speak out over terror in communities

By Staff Reporter

Murdered taxi driver Michael McGibbon's eldest daughter has said that people need to speak out against paramilitaries to stop more murders in their community.

Seana McGibbon was just 17 when her dad Michael was shot in an alleyway in Ardoyne in April.

The 33-year-old bled to death in the arms of his wife Joanne just yards from their family home.

Seana, the eldest of his four children, contacted the BBC's Nolan Show yesterday in response to the release of a report on the disbandment of paramilitary groups.

The independent action plan on how to deal with paramilitary groups warned that if steps were not taken to enhance community policing, "it is unlikely that significant progress can be made towards a culture of lawfulness".

Seana said: "I just want to express my anger towards how people are dealing with the criminals who did it. I think that it's so unfair that they are able to get away with it and because they are a law unto themselves, nothing will be placed unto them."
