Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson Raymond McCartney has confirmed the PSNI visited the homes of Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams and Chairperson of Cúige Uladh Bobby Storey to make them aware of death threats from criminal elements.
Mr McCartney said,
“I can confirm that the PSNI visited the homes of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey last night to warn them of a credible threat against their lives
“The PSNI officer told Gerry Adams' wife Collette that they had information of a "serious threat from criminals" to Gerry Adams who was not at home at the time.
“Clearly there are elements that are opposed to the peace process and anti Sinn Féin. We will not allow them to succeed nor will we be deflected from our determination to build the peace process.”
