McMullan seeks urgent meeting with Post Office after series of death threats

18 May, 2011


Sinn Féin MLA for East Antrim Oliver McMullan is to hold an urgent meeting with the Post Office after a number of bullets were posted to people in the north and east Antrim areas.
Speaking today Mr McMullan said;
“As well as a bullet being posted to me, similar threats were sent to figures in the GAA in Larne and Ballymena – obviously this is a major cause for concern.
My meeting with the Post Office will focus on why none of these packages were franked, despite being posted to the various addresses. Were they appropriately inspected before being forwarded? If they were then why wasn’t anything suspicious noticed?
Or were they inspected but allowed to go on anyway.
I am also meeting with the PSNI this afternoon to discuss the implications of these threats.” CRÍOCH
