No political leader should be subject to threats

Alliance Justice spokesperson Stewart Dickson has said no-one should face intimidation because of their political beliefs.

Mr Dickson was speaking after it was revealed Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams had received a death threat, reported to be from a loyalist group.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “While the comments made last week by Gerry Adams are unjustifiable, intimidation is never the answer.

“We live in a democratic society and no political leader should face the threat of death for his or her political background and beliefs.

“Events of the past week have again demonstrated why Northern Ireland needs a shared future, where all cultures and traditions are respected and tolerated.”
