Chris Lyttle MLA said: “I am glad to see the Police taking further action to combat these despicable attacks. Victims of hate crime need to have full confidence that they can report incidents to the Police in a safe and confidential manner.
“I would like to express my full support to all the victims of these racist attacks. Northern Ireland must be open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds.
“The small minority of individuals engaged in hate crime need to know the full force of the law will be brought to bear on them.
“Ultimately, this will need a society wide response to say no to all forms of hate.”
