Kelly won't be deterred by bomb threats

3 March, 2021 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has said he will not be deterred by a bomb threat at his constituency office in north Belfast. 

The North Belfast MLA said: 

"I was contacted by the PSNI who told me they had received a report that a bomb had been left at my constituency office on the Upper Antrim Road. 

"I was told that this bomb threat was phoned in from a loyalist area. This threat should be condemned in the strongest terms. 

“Those behind these incidents offer nothing to the community but criminality and fear should be faced down.

“This is the second incident of intimidation targeted at my recently opened constituency office in recent days but will not stop me or any other Sinn Féin activist, from working for all the people of North Belfast.

“I will be continuing my work for the people of North Belfast as normal today and Sinn Féin elected representatives will not be intimidated from our work in this or any other area."
