    "Such behaviour at a meeting called by the Home Affairs Department

    to hear both sides of the story and try to bring the sides closer together

    is unacceptable".

    The structure of this long sentence is such that the most important theme of the sentence, being "such behaviour is not acceptable", is divided into two part, separated by phrases/clauses which further describe the background information on the incident.

    Meaning:

    What happened: Such behaviour is not acceptable (someone did something which is very wrong)

    where: at a meeting

    who called the meeting: the Home Affairs Department

    purpose of the meeting: to hear both sides of the story and try to bring the sides closer together

    "part" in paragraph 2 should be "parts".

    Someone/ some people did something really wrong. ++++a smooth and better sentence
