Adams Receives Death Threat

3 August, 2003


Commenting after Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams was visited by the PSNI and told that dissident republicans were Œactively targeting‚ him, West Belfast Councillor Michael Ferguson said:

"Obviously republicans take all threats of this nature seriously, particularly at a time when the political process is in crisis.

"If this threat is true then I am sure that many republicans in West Belfast and further afield will be disappointed and indeed angry. However these republican micro organisations operate without either a mandate or a strategy to achieve change or deliver a united Ireland.

"Sinn Féin are absolutely committed to the peace process and we will not be deflected by threats from loyalists, the British or indeed so called dissident republicans." ENDS
