HAMMER HORROR CASE: ‘I’M GLAD DONEGAL TOWN MAN IS BEHIND BARS FOR LIFE’

December 29, 2011

A HEARTBROKEN mother whose son was battered to death by a hammer-wielding Donegal Town man has said his conviction for murder has been a “relief” for the family.

Following the convictions of Derek Johnston, his two sons and a fourth man, Mr Amar’s mother Flora Amar, from London, and his uncle Zafar Ismail, said in a statement: “The news that all four men have been convicted of Shaleem’s murder has been received with a sigh of great relief by his family and friends after 13 months of so torturous and agonising waiting.

“Both of us on behalf of all the family and friends would like to express our deep gratitude and great appreciation for the prosecution barristers, Noel Lucas QC and Matthew Walsh for their professionalism and passion for justice, police family liaison officers Densel McIntosh and Melanie Ward for their loving care and dedication, and also Det Sgt Mark Davis and the investigation team for their meticulous hard work and dedication on this case.”

Yesterday donegaldaily.com revealed that Johnston is on suicide watch after being told he must serve a minimum 28 years behind bars for the brutal killing in England last November.
