Vandals who daubed graffiti on the Sinn Féin constituency office at Ráth Mór have been described as “faceless criminals” by a local councillor.
Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Fleming, chair of the Derry Policing Community Safety Partnership, was speaking after slogans relating to the RUC were painted on the walls and windows of the office in the early hours of this morning.
“These attacks are being carried out by faceless criminals and vandals who have as little credibility within our community as the RUC had.
“I have no doubt that this latest attack will only serve as another clear reminder, if one were needed, that those responsible offer our community nothing for the future. Sinn Féin has come under attack in the past and we will not be deterred from doing our work on behalf of the people of Derry. In fact our Constituency Office at Ráth Mór opened this morning as normal.” he said.
Colr. Fleming also called on those responsible to explain their actions. “I am calling on the people behind this latest attack to explain their acts of wanton destruction. If they have a problem or issues with policing then they should come out publicly and state them.
“Sinn Féin has repeatedly said that if people want to talk or debate on these issues our door is open and again today I am sending out that challenge,” he said.
