‘SEI UN UOMO MORTO’, ASSALITO WILLIE FRAZER
Victims campaigner Willie Frazer has been attacked at his home tonight.
The high profile activist said a ‘car load of republicans’ arrived at his house outside Markethill, Co Armagh and he was handed a sympathy card and told: “You’re a dead man.”
He said: “Words were exchanged before they made at me and we ended up rolling around the garden.
“Some neighbours soon arrived and they began to leave. They said they would be back and that I was to get out, and again said, ‘You’re a dead man.’
“They said, ‘We haven’t gone away you know.’ I phoned the PSNI straight away but haven’t see them yet.”
Mr Frazer said he was still waiting for an ambulance and believes he has suffered broken ribs.
Mr Frazer, who runs the FAIR victims group, has been attacked before with his car being burned out in 2013.
He says he has been threatened many times due to his vehemently anti-republican stance and willingness to confront people he says are leading republicans in the South Armagh area.
Pastor Barrie Halliday, a friend of Frazer, told Belfast Live the attackers ‘Tyrone IRA’ and added: “They don’t give a f**k about the ceasefire and they’ll be back to get Willie.
“The police are here now and they are looking at the CCTV Willie has at the house.
“You can see the fella clear enough attacking Willie and Willie pushing him back. He’s pretty sore at the minute but he’s okay.”
