The vigilante group Republican Action Against Drugs has offered people they have ordered out of Derry an opportunity to return.
The group claim the number of people affected is actually very small, and figures are being exaggerated by some media outlets in a bid to discredit them.
The vigilante group Republican Action Against Drugs in Derry have offered what they described as 'the small number' of people who the have ordered to lave the city an opportunity to return.
The group said that if any individual who had been ordered to leave 'intefaced' with genuine community groups in the city, they could return.
The group also disputed claims made in some media outlets about the numbers ordered to leave the city with one newspaper claiming as many as five young people a week were being ordered out.
They claimed that they had actually ordered out very few people and that the newspaper stories were being put forward to try and discredit them.
RAAD said they would continue to defend the republican community, and repeated their warning against what they described as 'death dealers.'
