THE head of the PSNI in Belfast has blast those who left leaflets on cars in east Belfast threatening people who give information to the police.
The intimidating leaflets were left on the windscreen of car overnight on Friday.
District Commander Chief Superintendent Chris Noble said: “Police roundly condemn this cowardly attempt to intimidate a law abiding community.
“Policing only works in partnership with the community, acting on those things that are of concern to the community in order to keep them safe.
“Police will continue to apply legitimate pressure to those who prey on local people and who attempt to exercise illegitimate power and cause fear.
“Our focus on tackling criminality in East Belfast and all parts of the city will only be sharpened by this clear sign that community policing is having an impact.
“I would actively encourage anyone with any information about criminality in their area to pass that information to police on 101 or alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
East Belfast Alliance MLA Naomi Long tweeted on Saturday: “More of these disgusting leaflets being posted on cars overnight in #EastBelfast
“If you received one, feel free to contact me by private message or the Police directly, who are investigating. Any info might help.
“And of course, feel free to ignore them and continue to support the police in their work to keep our community safe.”
