East Belfast DUP councillor John Hussey has reported a number of republican Facebook pages to the PSNI.
“These sites are being used to encourage, and in some cases orchestrate, acts of terrorism and violence,” he said.
“They even discuss what tactics they should use in such attacks. With the parading season under way it is extremely important that the police investigate and arrest those behind these groups before they can carry out their plans.
“In months past we have seen loyalists convicted on the basis of what they have posted on social media sites. The posts on these republican hate sites are far more extreme and potentially deadly. The police must act immediately to ensure the law is administered fairly.”
