Statement by Minister Charlie Flanagan regarding today’s murder in Rouen, France

Minister Charles Flanagan, Press Releases, Europe, 2016

Minister Flanagan stated:

“I am appalled by the murder earlier today of an elderly Catholic priest in a church in Rouen and I condemn it in the strongest possible terms.

“I want to convey our condolences to the French Government and the people of France, who have yet again been targeted by those who have no regard for human life and no respect for the freedoms we all hold so dear.

“Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of the murder victim and with all of those affected by this horrific incident.”
