Sinn Féin Press Officer threatened by RIRA

Derry Sinn Féin Press Officer Dale Moore was last week visited by the PSNI and informed that they had intelligence information indicating that the so-called Real IRA intended to shoot him.
Speaking after receiving the threat, Moore said:
“I have been a republican activist all my life and lived with threat of attack from loyalists and British security forces over all of that time. I have no intention of letting a rag-tag group of pseudo-republicans deflect me from continuing with my political activism. Obviously you have to take every threat seriously but I will not allow it to interfere with my everyday living.
“I challenge the so-called Real IRA and the 32 County Sovereignty Movement to explain how they intend to free Ireland by threatening the lives of republican activists. It’s about time they recognise that they are despoiling the proud name of republicanism by their continued existence, never mind their activities.”
