Client talks to media about disability hate crime

Daniel Smith talks to the Guardian about his experiences of how the state responds to disability hate crime.

Daniel’s solicitor Sarah Ricca said, ‘The inadequate and discriminatory treatment that victims of disability hate crime receive from the authorities is well-documented. Daniel is determined to see things improve so that others don’t go through what he went through. He is pursuing complaints to the IPCC and the CPS and is being advised on the possibility of bringing a civil claim’.
