EAST Belfast MP Naomi Long has told of her concerns that the peace process “could unravel” with the violence associated with the Union Flag.
In an interview with the News Letter, to be published on Monday, the 41-year-old Alliance representative told how she received three death threats before Christmas.
“I got a death threat which was passed to me by the police. I had a further threat by email to the office and then a bullet was sent in the post to me – along with a number of other Stormont representatives,” she said.
“Of course this is unsettling – but what is more concerning to me is how quickly the peace process, as we know it, could unravel. When you think about that, we are right to be worried about the future.”
