PRESS RELEASE 4th JULY 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Evesham Town Council Response to Complaints
Evesham Town Council is aware of a video circulating on social media in which an Evesham Town Councillor, Cllr Emma Nishigaki, is seen using profane language and expressing xenophobic and ableist views.
The council is dismayed at the content of this video and wishes to distance itself most strongly from its content.
Evesham Town Council confirms its full support for all Ukrainian refugees, especially those living in our local community and for people with learning difficulties.
Cllr Nishigaki has said that the video was made before she joined the council, but we accept that this in no way excuses its content, and the council would like to apologise unreservedly for the hurt that it has caused in our community.
