The EXCLUSIVE Unionist Voice story can be read HERE

  
UUP Councillors Jim Rodgers and Sonia Copeland have threatened legal action following the publication of an exclusive Unionist Voice story on the secret Belfast City Council bonfire meeting. 

Sources within the meeting provided Unionist Voice with a detailed account of the contributions of all those present within the controversial meeting. 

Mr Rodgers has resolutely refused to comment in any shape or form on the meeting, continually citing a confidentially agreement between those present during the clandestine meeting. 

Despite this the veteran UUP man has now threatened legal action and presumably provided his legal advisors with his version of the confidential meeting. It is not clear whether Mr Rodgers will now finally break his self-imposed public silence in relation to the meeting. 

Taking to Facebook Mr Rodgers said he had contacted “legal advisors” and they were looking into the matter with “a view to prosecutions”. The term ‘prosecution’ is most commonly used when referring to criminal matters, however Mr Rodgers appears to be attempting to make reference to civil proceedings as no criminal law would apply. 

Fellow UUP Councillor Sonia Copeland has also claimed to have contacted “legal advisors”and has went a step further and promised to release a statement on her personal Facebook page in relation this matter. It is not known whether this statement will provide an account of the confidential meeting that has remained entirely secret until today. 

Unionist Voice would like to provide an open invitation to any of those present at the meeting to submit their account of the meeting and we will happily publish it as it is submitted. 


Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.

f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

    Thanks for your recommendations on this blog. One particular thing I would like to say is that purchasing electronic products items on the Internet is nothing new. The truth is, in the past ten years alone, the marketplace for online electronic products has grown substantially. Today, you could find practically just about any electronic gizmo and product on the Internet, including cameras and also camcorders to computer parts and game playing consoles.
