Lo condemns attacks on Polish families

Alliance South Belfast MLA Anna Lo has condemned attacks on three Polish families.

Homes on Roslyn Street were daubed with graffiti saying ‘locals only’ in the latest spate of hate crimes in the area.

Anna Lo MLA – the Alliance Party’s European candidate – said: “I absolutely condemn these attacks. Everyone has a right to live in peace in their own homes and I am disgusted at those behind these incidents.

“The local community at large do not support this kind of behaviour and I would appeal to anyone with information to get in touch with the PSNI as soon as possible.

“This is a worrying trend and as Chair of the Assembly All Party Group on Ethnic Minorities I have invited the PSNI to come to our next meeting to outline the work of their special task force recently set-up to tackle race hate crime.”
