Maskey slams vile South Belfast hate banner

Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has filed a complaint with the PSNI following the erection of a vile banner targeting Bobby Storey on a bonfire in South Belfast.

The West Belfast MP said:

“A vile banner was erected on a bonfire in South Belfast this evening targeting Bobby Storey.

“I have contacted the PSNI and filed a complaint.

“This banner is one of a series of blatant and unacceptable displays of sectarian hatred on bonfires yet again. 

“It is absolutely disgraceful that the Storey family who are grieving the loss of a husband, father, grandfather and brother, are having their hurt compounded by sectarian thugs.

“I am reiterating my call for all parties to unite in condemnation of this particularly vile kind of hate crime and call for an immediate end to these sickening displays.”
