DEATH THREAT TO VICTIMS’ CAMPAIGNER

Leading victims’ campaigner William Frazer has revealed he has received a death threat over the YouTube website warning him not to return to Londonderry. It follows the FAIR Director’s visit to the home of Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness in the city last week.

In a video posted by a masked man claiming to be a Republican from Glengormley, Mr. Frazer is warned “if he returns to Derry, he will be dealt with.” The man on the video also said Mr. Frazer was not welcome “in Derry, or Ireland.”

Mr. Frazer, who is meeting with DUP representatives at Stormont today to discuss a legal action against Libya, said the video proves members of the Protestant community are still under threat from Republicans. He said: “What happened to freedom of speech? It is clear there are people who simply do not want a Protestant about the place, and certainly don’t want the voice of victims to be heard.”

Mr. Frazer says the threat proves a mistake has been made by the authorities in turning down his request for a personal protection weapon. He now intends to bring the matter to the attention of the Police Ombudsman, Nuala O’Loan.

He added: “Police have been criticised for not dealing effectively with threats to Rosemary Nelson before her death. I have now had a series of death threats and no action has been taken. I am not even being allowed to protect myself. I will be contacting police directly about this to take action. The situation has to be addressed, and addressed urgently.”
