29 August, 2008

Sinn Féin Antrim Councillor Anne Marie Logue has been informed by the PSNI that unionist are threatening to shoot her.

Cllr Logue said:

"The PSNI have informed me of a death threat against me from Unionist paramilitaries

"Although the PSNI have failed to provide any details about this threat, it is clear that those issuing them have nothing to offer our communities and will not deter Sinn Féin from pursing our objectives of Irish Unity."

Party colleague, South Antrim MLA Mitchel McLaughlin added:

"This is a sick threat against a Councillor who works tirelessly for her constituency in South Antrim. She works for everyone and I would challenge unionist representatives to speak out and intervene directly to have this threat publicly withdrawn." ENDS
