Coalisland racist attack a disgrace - Dillon

17 April, 2017 - by Linda Dillon

Sinn Féin MLA for Mid Ulster Linda Dillon has slammed those behind a racist attack in Coalisland last night.

Speaking today Ms Dillon said:

“I condemn outright the racist attack against two members of the Latvian community last night in Coalisland.

“The Latvian community, and indeed those from other countries who have chosen to make Coalisland their their home, are an integral part of our community and are very welcome.

“Those responsible for this attack are a disgrace.

“We will not tolerate attacks against anyone due to their nationality, the language they speak or any other reason for that matter. There can be no place whatsoever for racism in our society. 

"I would encourage anyone with information on this attack to contact the PSNI."
