A WREXHAM factory worker has been fined for making a racial remark about an Iraqi Kurd who allegedly pestered two women.
Before Wrexham magistrates, Philip Anderson, 41, of Ceiriog Road, Caia Park, admitted using racially abusive behaviour or words and was fined £60 with £30 costs.
Rhian Edwards, prosecuting, said it happened as police were arresting Anderson's brother Kevin on suspicion of assaulting an Iraqi at 2am in Brook Street, on September 13.
Philip Anderson protested and was warned he could be arrested. Using a derogatory term, he replied that Iraqis should go back where they came from.
Stephen Edwards, defending, said the brothers went to a nightclub. Two women with Kevin were dancing when the man approached them.
'Kevin went over and there was a brief altercation between him and the Iraqi national,' said Mr Edwards
Later, a police car stopped and the man identified Kevin to officers.
'Philip thought the Kurdish national should have been arrested. Unfortunately, he used a swear word but he is not a racist,' added Mr Edwards.
