Delay with Maze plans risks jobs.
STALLING development of a peace centre at the former paramilitary prison is a mistake that could jeopardise jobs and the peace process.
Martin McGuinness spoke publicly last night about the latest twist in the ongoing saga for the first time and launched a stinging attack on the DUP's decision to halt the conflict resolution centre at the Maze in Co Antrim.
He said: "It is a mistake not just because it jeopardises much-needed investment and jobs, but also for the message it sends to the vast majority of people who are rock solid behind the peace process.
"Some in the extremes of political unionism believe that they can unpick the Good Friday Agreement."
Victims' groups, the Orange Order and DUP political rivals had opposed development of the peace centre over fears it could "glorify terrorism".
