A message on a wall in the Belvoir area of south Belfast spotted on Saturday morning has since been painted over
The PSNI are treating graffiti on a Belfast wall about Tanaiste Leo Varadkar ‘not to cross the border’ as a hate crime.
Via The Irish News:
Northern ireland First Minister Arlene Foster tweeted: “Violence or the threat of violence has no place in democracy. I condemn those behind this.
“The NI Protocol needs replaced but violence or its threat will not achieve the change Northern Ireland needs.”
Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill said she was “shocked at the disgusting graffiti targeting Leo Varadkar which I condemn, as will the majority of people across the community.
“This is a hate crime motivated by prejudice,” she said.
“It’s also criminal damage and anyone with information should contact police who must investigate.”
