Petrol bomb attack on Sinn Féin Councillor’s car

19 February, 2014

Speaking after a petrol bomb attack on his car last night, Waterford City Sinn Féin Councillor John Hearne has said no amount of intimidation will stop him from challenging criminality in his community.

Councillor Hearne said;

“In recent weeks I have been encouraging people to be brave in standing up to criminal elements in this community.

“The only way to stop these people is to cooperate with the Gardaí despite threats and intimidation.

“No amount of intimidation will stop me from challenging criminality in my community.

“Those responsible for the petrol bomb on my car last night have only strengthened my resolve.

“I encourage anyone with any information to bring it forward to the Gardaí and to cooperate with any inquiries they may launch.”
