DUP MLA Paul Frew has condemned the threat against Probation Board staff from dissident republicans.
It comes after staff were informed of an increase in the risk of attack. Mr Frew previously chaired the Assembly’s Justice Committee.
He said, “This is a disgraceful threat which must be condemned by everyone. Employees of the Probation Service are doing a vital job on behalf of the whole community and they deserve our full support.
I would hope that staff will not be deterred from continuing their work and that any assistance they need in terms of security will be provided to them.”
