Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has condemned the placing of posters on a bonfire in Derry as a hate crime.
The Foyle MP said:
“The placing of posters in support of Derry man Tony Taylor, who is currently imprisoned, on a loyalist bonfire in Derry is wrong and should be treated as a hate crime.
“The appearance of these posters on a bonfire in the Nelson Drive area of the city has been reported to the PSNI.
“No posters or flags should be burned on bonfires in this way.
“I would call on those in positions of leadership in communities to act to bring an end to this activity.” Ends/Críoch
