Anna Lo MLA said: “I welcome the outcome of this case. I hope this shows that those who send offensive and threatening messages will have to deal with the full force of the courts and face the consequences of their actions.
“Those sending these sorts of messages will never deter Alliance from working on behalf of everyone to build a safe, shared and prosperous society for all.
“I hope this judgement will act as a deterrent to others from sending such messages on social media. There is a growing problem of cyber-bullying and sending threatening messages online that we must take a strong stance against.”
