The Irish News reports that David Muldrew was summoned to court following accusations of the distribution and hanging of anti-Islam posters.
The 47-year-old from Armagh, Northern Ireland, stated that he understood the charge against him when addressed in the dock of Armagh Magistrates Court.
Muldrew has been accused of displaying written material on June 21, 2017, “which was threatening, abusive or insulting, intending thereby to stir up hatred or arouse fear or, having regard to all the circumstances hatred was likely to be stirred up or fear was likely to be aroused.”
An additional individual, 38-year-old Barry Patrick Toner, was due to appear in court with Muldrew, but was unable to attend as he was admitted to a drug rehabilitation facility.
A female police officer has provided evidence that connect both men to the charges, following a report of the display of the anti-Muslim materials in Armagh and Newry on June 21.
The Deputy District Judge ordered Muldrew to appear in court on August 22.
