Threats will not stop Sinn Féin work - Cllr McVeigh
December 7, 2012
Sinn Féin Belfast City Councillor Jim McVeigh said the death threat issued against him will not deter or intimidate Sinn Féin from the work of making the City Hall a more inclusive place.
Speaking today the Sinn Féin group leader on the council said:
“Those behind the issuing of a death threat against me will not not deter or intimidate Sinn Féin from the work of making the City Hall a more inclusive place.
“The threat was phoned to our Falls Road office indicating that I would be shot, or if I was seen in the street I would be stabbed.
“Those behind it cannot accept democracy or the fact that I have been democratically elected to represent the people of this city. They will not stop me in this work.”
