Racist abuser ‘ashamed’ of comments

A MAN who shouted racist abuse in Heckmondwike was told his actions belong in the past.

Vijard Hussain, 26, of Hutton Drive, pleaded guilty to two charges of racially-aggravated threatening behaviour in an incident on May 19.

Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard he abused a housing project worker and a police officer at Lavender Croft, a hostel which offers temporary living for young people waiting for permanent accommodation.

Loud noises were heard coming from a property where Hussain’s girlfriend was staying.

A housing officer came to see what was going on and Hussain swore and made racist comments to her.

Police were called and he referred to the Welsh nationality of one of the officers while continuing to be abusive.

Jonathan Slawinski, for Hussain, said his client was having a row with his girlfriend.

He reacted to an intervention in their personal affairs but was ashamed of the comments he made.

Hussain was fined £120 for each offence. He also has to pay £85 court costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
