Dr Chris McGimpsey, the Ulster Unionist Party’s candidate for the Lisnasharragh DEA in the forthcoming Council elections has condemned the recent spate of attacks in Belfast, culminating in last night’s petrol bomb attack on the Alliance Party offices in east Belfast.
Mr McGimpsey said;
“I unreservedly condemn the spate of attacks which have taken place in Belfast in recent weeks.
“This includes last night’s disgraceful petrol bomb attack on the Alliance Party offices in east Belfast and the recent spate of racially motivated attacks which have taken place in various parts of our city.
“These appalling incidents are a stain on our city and most emphatically do not reflect the true attitudes of the people who live here.
“Anyone who engages in racist attacks is attacking the tolerance and generosity of spirit for which the people of Belfast are rightly famed. They represent no-one.
“I would urge anyone who can help the Police to apprehend those responsible for any such attacks to come forward immediately and pass that information on to the PSNI.”
