RAAD issue threat to kill Inishowen drug dealers

The group calling itself "Republican Action Against Drugs" has said it will kill drug dealers in Inishowen.

Last year, the group issued an unspecified threat, but now, they have made a comprehensive statement to the Inish Times newspaper.

Cllr Murray said that there was no support within the community in Inishowen for this group and added that they should ‘go away and stay away’.
