Kelly condemns those behind sectarian hate crime

Alliance Councillor Michelle Kelly has condemned those behind a sectarian hate crime in East Belfast.

Paint was thrown at the window of a house in the Mount area around 9.10pm yesterday (Friday). No-one was injured in the incident, which police are treating as a sectarian hate crime.

“I utterly condemn those behind this incident,” said Councillor Kelly.

“Those behind it do not speak for the majority of people in East Belfast, which is an open and welcoming community for those of all backgrounds. People who engage in sectarian behaviour of any kind do nothing but bring shame upon themselves.

“I urge anyone with information on this incident to give it to police immediately.”
