The Workers Party has condemned the on-line abuse directed at Health Minister Robin Swann as ‘vile, grossly offensive and totally unrepresentative of the views of citizens across Northern Ireland‘.
Minister Swann is currently co-ordinating Northern Ireland’s health and social care services in the battle against Coronavirus.
This type of abhorrent sectarian abuse can never be justified. That it is directed against Robin Swann and his family at a time when he is discharging his public duties, under considerable pressure, on behalf of the whole community, makes it even more repulsive.
Robin Swann deserves the full support of everyone in Northern Ireland , including his colleagues in government, as he helps to deliver the strategic response to C19.
