SF condemns 'sick' loyalist death threats

 

Sinn Féin has condemned "sick" death threats made against its councillors by a loyalist splinter group. 

The party’s Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew said the threats had been issued to a newspaper in Co Fermanagh by a group calling itself the Real UVF.

Ms Gildernew said those issuing the threats had nothing to offer society and would not prevent councillors from doing their work.

“These sick threats against a team of councillors who work tirelessly for their constituents in Fermanagh should be condemned by people from across the political spectrum,” she said.

A PSNI spokesperson said they did not discuss the personal security of individuals.
