Anonymous Social Media Posts Are Not The Way To Deal With Crime - SF

Anonymous social media posts are not the way to deal with crime, Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady has said, urging anyone with information on illegal drug dealing and criminality to bring it to the PSNI.

The Newry and Armagh MP said: "Anonymous social media posts which have been widely shared making broad sweeping allegations about involvement in the drug trade are irresponsible.

"This is not the way to deal with such a serious issue which is blighting communities and causing serious harm.

"It is up to the police and the justice system to deal with such crimes and everyone is entitled to due process before the law.

"I would ask people not to share these posts and if anyone has any information or evidence of drug dealing or any crime, they should bring it forward to the PSNI."
