MFAT on threats to PBNI staff by dissident republicans

Statement by Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney TD, on threats to PBNI staff by dissident republicans

"I utterly condemn any threat of violence in Northern Ireland toward any individual or organisation as they go about their daily work. The Probation Board for Northern Ireland provides a service and support to all members of the community in Northern Ireland. They also work closely with the Probation Service of Ireland.

These sorts of threats have no place and no support on the island of Ireland today."
