Kurdish man faces jail for Hitler remark
A KURDISH man who told a council housing worker she was Hitler’s wife and should be shot is facing prison.
Hussein Alyasi, 31, also asked staff if they knew who Isis were after being told they could not help him.

Sheriff Court, Iain

Sheriff Moira McKenzie found Alyasi guilty of breach of the peace after making the remarks in October 2016. Sentence was deferred. PROSECUTORS intend to go ahead with legal action involving a veteran republican charged in connection with the murder of Jean McConville, a lawyer told a court.
