EDITORIAL: PSNI must refuse to be used as political pawns by nationalist Belfast City Council

By Jamie Bryson Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI There has been significant misrepresentation of events over recent days concerning bonfires in the east Belfast area. It appears a narrative has taken hold that loyalists in the East Belfast Cultural Collective were advocating the burning of tyres; nothing could be further from the truth. The group has been clear […]

EDITORIAL: Sinn Fein’s flag motion is an absurd and legally illiterate stunt with little prospect of success

NEWS: PSNI launch a Supreme Court assault on press freedom as they seek to narrow protections for journalistic material

By Jamie Bryson- Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI In my recent Judicial Review challenge the High Court ruled that in the event that the PSNI had corporate knowledge that a person may be in possession of journalistic material, then the enhanced protections apply- even if the police are not seeking journalistic material- and as such they would be […]

NEWS: Union Flag protestors should have their convictions quashed as officer faces criminal courts for misconduct

By Jamie Bryson- Editor@UnionistVoice.com @JamieBrysonCPNI It was heart-warming to see the PPS statement carried in the Irish News in which they issued a warning relating to reporting or commentary which could prejudice the officer’s trial.
