Theft of election posters attempt to attack democratic process - McShane
Speaking after the PSNI confirmed a file had gone to the Public Prosecution Services regarding her stolen election posters, Sinn Féin Councillor Cara McShane said:
“The theft of election posters is a criminal offence and an attempt to attack the democratic process.
“The PSNI must take robust and effective legal action against those involved in the criminal theft and possession of election posters.
“This criminality must be stamped out. Those who steal posters and others who keep this stolen property in their possession are guilty of criminal acts.
“A large number of Sinn Féin election posters have also been stolen from other areas across the north and Sinn Féin poster teams have been physically threatened.
“Sinn Féin have a democratic and legitimate right to campaign, and to bring our message of equality, rights and Irish Unity to the people of the Causeway Coast and Glens area.
"Despite efforts to undermine that message, Sinn Féin will not be deterred.”
