North Down candidate reports online posts to PSNI - Dillon
Sinn Féin's Linda Dillon has said Sinn Féin election candidate Kieran Maxwell and two other party activists have made complaints to the PSNI over offensive remarks on social media.
Ms Dillon said;
"Sinn Féin candidate Kieran Maxwell and two party colleagues have made formal complaints to the PSNI in relation to hate crimes over offensive posts on social media.
"They have also been in contact with Facebook.
"Sinn Féin is calling on all other political parties to reject these attacks on candidates and attempts to intimidate the democratic process.
"Hopefully this is not the outworking of the 'brutal' election campaign promised by the DUP."
