Sabina Nessa’s sister says her murder would have been ‘front page news’ if she were white | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Sabina Nessa’s sister says her murder would have been ‘front page news’ if she were white | ITV News” – below is their description.

Jebina Yasmin Islam, Sabine Nessa’s sister, told ITV News Correspondent Chloe Keedy that she believes her murder would have been treated differently by the media if Sabina had been a white woman.

“It’s down to ethnicity… I do have a load of newspapers, for mine and my daughters’ sake – to remember her auntie,” she said.

“Sabina was getting page seven, page nine, just a little section of it. And, for example, Sarah Everard was getting front page coverage. It’s not fair. Every woman whose life is taken should be on the front page. It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black or what ethnicity you are. A life has been taken.”
