Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MP MLA has condemned the death threat against the Alliance Party’s East Belfast MP Naomi Long and has called for it to be withdrawn immediately.
Speaking today Mr McGuinness said:
“The death threat against the East Belfast MP Naomi Long is to be condemned in the strongest possible terms and needs to be withdrawn immediately.
“It is the latest in a series of threats against elected representatives since Monday.
“This is the work of facists who cannot accept the democratic decision ofBelfast City Council.
“Threats remain against Alliance Councillor Laura McNamee, Sinn Féin’s Gerry Kelly and Cllr Jim McVeigh. Each and everyone of these threats must be lifted."
