The Workers Party has added its voice to the the chorus of condemnation of paramilitary deaths threats against journalist Patricia Devlin and her family.
“Condemnation must be loud, unequivocal and incessant”, the Party said.
“These are vicious and cowardly threats directed, in this case against a journalist but also, against numerous individuals and families thoughout the community .
There can be no justification, no excuses and no tolerance of this type of behaviour. These threats come from armed gangs of criminals who seek to terrorise working class communities, individuals and anyone who seeks to expose or criticise their criminal activities”.
“We all have a collective responsibility to stand against this intimidation and terror and to stand with those directly targetted. Anyone with any information about these or similar threats should contact the PSNI”, the Party said.
