FAC welcomes Celtic PLC Statement re OB Act

Celtic FC Statement and an Early Review

Fans Against Criminalisation are encouraged that Celtic Football Club has publicly called for an early review of the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act. We agree entirely with the club’s assertion that the act is ‘’unhelpful and counter-productive’’ and that there is sufficient evidence to support an immediate review, which we feel is clearly in the public interest. To wait any longer is merely to allow greater time for this act to cause further damage to the lives of football supporters.

FAC would like to work together with Celtic Football Club as well as the entire Celtic support to continue to challenge this dangerous and discriminatory law. It is of crucial importance that there is a unified front on this issue and that there is sustained public pressure on the SNP to accept that this act simply has not worked.
