Glasgow Kelvin SNP MSP Sandra White has condemned the attack on a Chinese student this week on Dumbarton Road which Police Scotland are treating as a hate crime motivated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Commenting on the incident Ms White said:
“This is a disgusting attack and will not be tolerated. To attack an innocent person in the street for no other reason than sheer ignorance is utterly appalling.
“Hate crime is unacceptable in modern day Scotland. This is a time when we need to be supporting each other, not attacking one another.
“I sincerely hope this is an isolated case and would encourage anyone who has been a victim of hate crime or anyone who has witnessed hate crime to report it to Police Scotland immediately.”
