Sinn Fein Says DUP Is Blocking Progress Towards Social Equality In Northern Ireland

: 08/18/2017 - 10:10

Sinn Féin says the DUP is blocking progress towards social equality in Northern Ireland.

It follows the dismissal yesterday of two landmark court challenges on the same sex marriage ban north of the border.

The judge for both cases told the High Court in Belfast that it was for the Stormont Assembly to decide social policy - not the courts.

But Sinn Fein's Carál Ní Chuilín says it's a serious setback for the LGBT community.
