George Otto Simms
On 10 August 1971, the day after the reintroduction of internment, Simms issued a joint statement with Rev. Charles Bain (Methodist), and the Right Rev. Rupert Gibson (Presbyterian), which stated that "because of the continuing violence and bloodshed for which there can be no Christian justification, the Government in its duty to all citizens had no option but to introduce strong measures which may be distasteful to many".
