Govt urged to review Incitement to Hatred Act

The Government is being urged to review the Incitement to Hatred Act after new figures reveal that a quarter of all stabbing victims here over the last five years were foreign nationals.

100 people have been fatally stabbed in Ireland since 2003 - 26 of the victims were foreigners.

The Immigrant Council of Ireland says it is shocked by the statistics.

The Council's Senior Solicitor Hilkka Becker wants the Government to take steps to address the problem.
