Dickson condemns Orange hall attack

Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has condemned an attack on an Orange hall in Co Tyrone.

Glenageeragh Orange Hall in Augher received minor damage after a petrol bomb attack yesterday morning (Saturday). Police have said the incident is being treated as a hate crime.

“This was nothing more than pure hatred, likely carried out by mindless, sectarian thugs,” said Mr Dickson.

“Incidents like this do nothing except attempt to intimidate one section of our community and should be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

“The people responsible for this attack offer nothing positive to our society. I would encourage anyone with information to report it to the police immediately.”
