Aileen Mellon
Derry Sinn Féin Councillor Aileen Mellon  has expressed grave concern at a surge in online crime against women.  She was commenting after figures released by Amnesty revealed that 433 online crimes have been logged with the PSNI in the last year.  Cllr Mellon (pictured) said: “Among these horrendous crimes is harassment, stalking and death threats. This is a traumatic and emotional experience.  “Online abuse should be reported to the PSNI and internet providers - we need a joint effort to eradicate online abuse.  “I would appeal to anyone who is suffering from online bullying to reach out and seek help.”
