Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has condemned the theft of Sinn Féin election posters in Coleraine.

The East Derry MLA was speaking after the removal of election posters belonging to Ciarán Archibald, the Sinn Féin candidate in Coleraine,

“The removal of these posters on the eve of a loyalist band parade in Coleraine coincided with the erection of loyalist flags, including paramilitary flags, in the town.

“An official complaint regarding the theft of the posters has been made to the PSNI by the candidate and the paramilitary flags have also been reported.

“The theft of election posters is a criminal offence and a direct attack upon the democratic process.

“These criminal acts will inevitably lead to another wave of hate crimes later in the summer.

“Sinn Féin has a democratic and legitimate right to campaign, we will not be intimidated from bringing our message of equality, rights and Irish Unity to the people of the Causeway Coast and Glens area.”
